Description:The CDC, Division of Cancer Prevention and Control (DCPC) announces the availability of Fiscal Year 2019 funds to implement DP19-1905, The CDC Cancer Genomics Program: Translating Research into Public Health Practice. This program addresses the utilization of cancer genetic services as a strategy for cancer prevention and control. The primary outcomes of this NOFO are to increase screening of cancer family history and to increase the use of genetic counseling and testing for Hereditary Breast and Ovarian Cancer (HBOC) and Lynch Syndrome (LS) among individuals meeting recommendations for referral. This funding opportunity supports the implementation and evaluation of public health activities within four core strategies to build the evidence base and disseminate best practices. These priorities will be accomplished by funding up to 5 awardees to develop, implement, and evaluate state-level programs in cancer genomics. Funding will support applicants that demonstrate: Appropriate experience with surveillance systems, partners and similar work in cancer genomics Appropriate organizational capacity to perform, implement, and evaluate activities and strategies An approach that is consistent with the strategies and outcomes described in the NOFO An ability to collect data towards key performance measures and outcomes Innovative methods and approaches to program and strategy implementation
