CDC announces the availability of fiscal year 2023 funds to implement CDC-RFA-DP-23-0017: Provision of Training and Technical Assistance to Enhance Comprehensive Cancer Control Outcomes. This 5-year multi-component notice of funding opportunity will fund as many as 3 recipients with the expertise, capacity, and national reach needed to provide training and technical assistance (TTA) to National Comprehensive Cancer Control Program (NCCCP) award recipients and cancer coalitions on—
- Multisectoral partnerships.
- Policy, system, and environmental change approaches.
- Addressing social determinants to improve health and advance health equity.
Applicants may apply for Component A and/or Component B. If applying for both Component A and Component B, a separate application with a separate proposed work plan and budget must be submitted for each component. Receiving a Component B award is not contingent upon receiving a Component A award.
The aim of Component A is to provide tools and skills so all NCCCP award recipients can succeed at convening and supporting a cancer coalition to use policy, system, and environmental change approaches when implementing the jurisdictional cancer plan. TTA topics align with the priorities, strategies, activities, and guidance provided to NCCCP award recipients funded under CDC-RFA-DP22-2202 – Cancer Prevention and Control Programs for State, Territorial, and Tribal Organizations.
The aim of Component B is to provide TTA to scale 3 out of 4 projects previously piloted by CDC’s Comprehensive Cancer Control Branch. The component B recipient will assist a subset of NCCCP award recipients in adapting materials and methods to scale CDC’s Using Project ECHO and Patient Navigation to Improve the Health and Wellness of Cancer Survivors in Rural Communities (with practice guide: Public Health Strategies to Help Cancer Survivors in Rural Communities) project and any two of the following additional projects—
- Preventing Liver Cancer Among Opioid Users.
- Increasing Receipt of Ovarian Cancer Care from a Gynecologic Oncologist.
- Addressing Risk Factors for Adult Cancers during Childhood (Iowa and Pennsylvania).

Frequently Asked Questions
Please expand the questions below to see answers.
No. As noted on page 27 of the NOFO, there is no page limit. However, the Project Narrative section on the same page provides details for the project narrative that need to be followed.
No. As noted on page 16 of the NOFO, a DMP is not required since this NOFO does not involve the generation or collection of public health data.
No. As noted throughout the NOFO, a separate application must be submitted for each component. Components A and B will have separate review panels and must have separate applications. Also as noted on page 22 of the NOFO, the applicant must clearly indicate in the project abstract the component for which they are applying. If the component is not explicitly stated in the project abstract, the application will be deemed nonresponsive and will not receive further review.
This is a new NOFO. As noted on page 5 of the NOFO under Relevant Work, it builds on previously funded technical assistance and training cooperative agreements CDC-RFA-DP18-1805, Provision of Technical Assistance and Training to Assure Comprehensive Cancer Control Outcomes and CDC-RFA-DP13-1315, National Support to Enhance Implementation of Comprehensive Cancer Control Activities.
We do not refer to NOFOs as another iteration of a previous NOFO. It is a new NOFO.
It would be appropriate to use the program management sub-header for the staffing plan. Under H. Other Information (page 45 of the NOFO), there is a list of optional attachments. You can upload your organizational chart information as a PDF and name it as such. Per the NOFO, applicants are not to attach documents other than those listed. If other documents are attached, applications will not be reviewed.
In the Collaborations section on page 11, 1a refers to collaborations with other DP23-0017 award recipients and organizations such as the CDC National Networks and others that receive CDC program funding to provide technical assistance and support to NCCCP recipients and coalitions. 1b refers to collaborations with organizations not directly funded by CDC to deliver training and technical assistance to NCCCP recipients and coalitions.
We used the terms “peer-to-peer learning” and “peer learning/communities of practice” interchangeably in most places, but we do offer additional detail on communities of practice on page 8, letter f: “Facilitate community of practice sessions that include both a brief didactic component and an opportunity for peer-to-peer learning. Frequency and agenda should be identified with input from NCCCP recipients and CCC coalitions.” Also, there is detail on page 36 on Component B communities of practice: “Convene and support an Implementation Community of Practice of NCCCP recipients performing the same implementation project to foster collaboration, further expertise, encourage information and material/process sharing when appropriate, and promote sustained conduct of these implementation projects by NCCCP recipients.” So yes, a Project ECHO could be considered a community of practice, if the recipient established one with a subgroup of DP22-2202 recipients.
Yes, this is a formal plan that needs to be submitted within a certain timeframe upon receipt of the award. The NOFO doesn’t specify the date because the two Component A recipients awarded are expected to collaborate on the TTA plan.
No. However, NCCCP award recipients and coalitions may prioritize these activities based on the priorities described in their comprehensive cancer control plans and the resources of the coalitions.
Some DP22-2202 recipients will select a pilot project to implement before DP23-0017 begins. However, DP22-2202 recipients may implement one of the four pilot projects at any time throughout the DP22-2202 lifecycle. While DP23-0017 recipients may not advise DP22-2202 recipients on the strategy they choose, DP23-0017 recipients are expected to provide technical assistance and training to DP22-2202 recipients as they implement the projects they choose.
No. A proposal with a proposed budget of more than $750,000 will not be denied review.
No. As noted on page 27 of the NOFO, a letter of intent is not required or requested.
