Cancer Australia invites applications for funding under the Supporting People with Cancer Grant initiative, which aims to reduce the burden of cancer through the provision of grants to community organisations; and encourage effective partnerships between organisations in order to improve coordination, accessibility and development of quality cancer support networks to better support people affected by cancer.

The areas of priority for applicants to target have been strengthened and aligned with Cancer Australia’s Strategic Plan 2014-2019. This Framework consists of two categories.

Applicants are required to prepare a funding proposal against one of the two categories below and must clearly demonstrate how their proposed project will address one or more of the priority target areas within the chosen category.

Category one: improving outcomes for people whose outcomes are poor and demonstrating impact at a health systems level and/or community systems level:

  • People whose outcomes are poorer
  • Regional and rural areas

Category two: improving support, consumer involvement and evidence-based information at a local level:

  • Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples
  • People from culturally and linguistically diverse backgrounds
  • People from low socioeconomic status areas

The outcome will build evidence-based information and improve access to quality, coordinated and sustainable cancer support networks for all Australians.

Applicants can apply for grants of up to $120,000 (GST exclusive) over a three year period (2019-2022) and organisations will be required to contribute funding towards the objectives.

Applications close: 30 October 2018.
