ACS offers grants to community organizations
The American Cancer Society, Midwest Division, is offering grants up to $25,000 to community organizations working to impact the effects of cancer.

Priority is given to those community-based initiatives that focus on reducing disparities in breast cancer screening and treatment, increasing colon cancer screening, improving access to treatment for rural and underserved populations, and reducing tobacco use.

All four priority areas place specific importance on addressing disparities and must include proposed activities to address this focus.

Grant-eligible organizations include social services agencies, cancer coalitions, colleges and universities, medical and nursing schools, and faith-based community groups. The deadline for submitting a Letter of Intent is Wednesday, Nov. 30.

For more information about the Society's Community Cancer Initiatives Grants Program or instructions for submitting a Letter of Intent, contact Karen Stewart at 262-523-5523 or karen.stewart@cancer.org.
