NCI: Comprehensive Partnerships to Advance Cancer Health Equity

Funding Opportunity Number: PAR-23-308

Deadline: January 16, 2024


The NCI conducts and supports research, training, health information dissemination, and other programs concerning cancer. This funding opportunity seeks to support the Comprehensive Partnerships to Advance Cancer Health Equity (CPACHE) Program. The CPACHE Program develops and maintains comprehensive, long-term, mutually beneficial partnerships between institutions serving underserved health disparity populations and underrepresented students (ISUPSs) and NCI-designated Cancer Centers (CCs). To underscore their commitment to the partnership, linked applications from each partnering institution are required. The program aims to achieve a stronger national cancer program and address challenges in cancer and cancer disparities research, education, outreach, and cancer’s impact on underserved populations.

The institutions in each partnership are expected to work collaboratively to:

1) increase the capacity of cancer research and cancer research education of the ISUPSs

2) promote the diversity of the cancer research workforce

3) improve the effectiveness of CCs in developing and sustaining research programs focused on cancer health disparities and increase the number of investigators and students conducting cancer health disparities research; and

4) develop and implement cancer-related outreach and education initiatives that benefit the surrounding underserved communities.
