ACS Funding for Pilot Studies using CBPR to reduce Cancer Health Disparities
RFA: Pilot Studies Using Community-Based Participatory Research to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities
Disparities in cancer health outcomes among racial, ethnic and economically vulnerable populations have been widely documented, resulting in a disproportionate burden borne by ethnic/racial minorities and underserved populations. The causes of such disparities appear to be multifaceted and complex and occur all along the cancer continuum (from prevention and early detection to access to care through treatment, survivorship and end of life care.)  There is an urgent need to find effective interventions that will result in a reduction of cancer health disparities. The American Cancer Society is committed to reducing disparities in cancer burdens among population groups and to achieving health equity through its programmatic, research and advocacy strategies. The purpose of this call for applications is to stimulate research on effective interventions to reduce cancer health disparities (at any stage of the cancer continuum), using community-based participatory research (CBPR).[CBPR listserv]

Public Health Law Research: Making the Case for Laws That Improve Health
Public Health Law Research (PHLR) is a national program of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. The program seeks to build the evidence for and strengthen the use of regulatory, legal and policy solutions to improve public health and help people lead healthier lives. PHLR is equally interested in identifying and ameliorating laws and legal practices that unintentionally harm health.[RWJF Funding Alerts]

Designing and Building Healthy Place
The purpose of the program is to increase the capacity of state, tribal and local government to include health considerations in community development, transportation, housing, and land use planning decisions, and to expand the scope of health impacts considered when making decisions that impact community design.  Recipients will be expected to support the mission of the CDCs Healthy Community Design Initiative: [CBPR listserv]
