Application or LOI Due Date
LOI due 2/15/21 for application due date of 3/15/21.
Brief Description

The purpose of this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) is to solicit applications to develop, adapt, and test individual-, community- or multilevel interventions to address modifiable risk factors for cancer in rural populations. Applications should focus on primary prevention and assess and address one or more of the social and behavioral risk factors that contribute to cancer disparities in rural populations: tobacco use; diet, physical activity and weight; alcohol use; UV exposure; and HPV vaccination. Applications should also assess and address myriad social determinants of health, cultural factors, and health care and technology access barriers that may contribute to rural cancer disparities. This FOA also encourages implementation science research, to incorporate efficacious cancer control interventions in a coordinated way, into broader, sustainable health programs that are designed to reach rural populations and allow local customization and adaptation.
