Colorado Cancer Coalition releases requests for proposals

The Colorado Cancer Coalition announces the Colorado Cancer Fund 2014/15 request for proposals (RFP).  Through the generous voluntary donations of Colorado taxpayers, we are able to fund twelve $5,000 awards this year. Proposed programs should focus on education, screening, diagnostic services, and/or efforts to improve the quality of life of people affected by cancer in Colorado. 

The Colorado Cancer Fund Advisory Board seeks to award at least one grant in each of the following five regions of Colorado: Southeast, Southwest, Northwest, Northeast, and Denver metro area.  Appendix B illustrates the boundaries of these regions.  Grants may be awarded in amounts up to $5,000. Applications for any amount up to $5,000 are encouraged.  Eligible applicants for these grants include local governments, health departments, community-based programs, private sector entities, and nonprofit organizations.  Only one application per entity will be accepted.  Individuals are not eligible to apply.  Previous grantees are eligible.  Collaborative Task Force programs are eligible, provided that the application is sponsored by an otherwise eligible entity or organization.  

Proposals must be submitted by December 1, 2014. The grant cycle is estimated to begin January 1, 2015 and will end June 30, 2015.  To learn more about this exciting opportunity and download the RFP, please click [here].
