Colorectal Cancer Control Program (CRCCP)
CDC’s Colorectal Cancer Control Program (CRCCP) helps states and tribes across the United States increase colorectal (colon) cancer screening rates among men and women aged 50 years and older. An increase in screening rates will reduce illness and death from colorectal cancer.
On September 30, 2015, CDC announced it has awarded a total of $22,800,000 to 24 state health departments, six universities, and one American Indian tribe. Please see the press release.
