Develop the National Childhood Cancer Registry

Amount: Up to $300,000 for one year
Purpose: Supplemental funding will enable the cancer centers to aggregate, integrate, and submit their existing data beyond traditional cancer abstracts on childhood cancer patients under 19 years of age receiving care at the cancer center to the NCCR in order to expand that infrastructure and ultimately support research on childhood cancer.

New Interdisciplinary Research on Cancer and Aging

Award Amount: Up to $150,000 for one year
Purpose: Contemporary improvements in early detection and diagnosis, cancer treatment, and the implementation of population-based cancer prevention and control strategies have contributed to a sustained decline in overall cancer mortality rates. Although this trend is promising, challenges at the nexus of cancer and aging are, in turn, becoming more prominent.

Enhancement and Expansion of the C3I Program to Develop Tobacco Cessation Treatment Capacity and Infrastructure for Cancer Patients

Award Amount: Up to $200,000 for one year
Purpose: To develop or enhance tobacco cessation treatment capacity and infrastructure for cancer patients that will lead to the implementation and dissemination of a sustainable tobacco cessation treatment program within the cancer center. 

Investigate Vaccine Hesitancy Related to Uptake of the HPV Vaccine in Regions with Low Adolescent HPV Vaccination Rates

Award Amount: Up to $200,000 for one year
Purpose: To understand characteristics of vaccine-hesitant communities within the cancer center catchment area, to identify promising and innovative approaches to reducing hesitancy and other barriers to HPV vaccination, and to gather pilot data to support future interventions towards reducing vaccine hesitancy and increasing HPV vaccination.

Support Community Outreach and Engagement (COE) Activities across the Translational Research Continuum

Award Amount: Up to $150,000 for one year
Purpose: To build capacity for COE activities that address two distinct areas of the translational research continuum: basic science and public/community health. 

Determine Patterns of Cannabis Use among Cancer Patients

Award Amount: Up to $150,000 for one year
Purpose: To provide resources to support the time and effort of investigators at NCI-designated cancer centers to plan and administer a survey that will include data on the frequency and duration of cannabis use, modes of use, reasons for use, discussion of use with clinical providers, and perceived risks and benefits associated with use among cancer patients undergoing or have recently completed active treatment. 

Address Financial Hardship during Cancer Treatment

Award Amount: Up to $150,000 for one year
Purpose: To develop or expand NCI Cancer Center's capacity and necessary infrastructure to deliver evidence-based financial navigation services. It is expected that this work will inform the development and expansion of research to inform the financial navigation program within the Cancer Center to decrease cancer-related financial hardship among patients and their families.
