CDC provides technical assistance and guidance to NCCCP awardees through a variety of methods to include technical assistance and training cooperative agreements with national organizations. Through these agreements, CDC partners with national organizations to assess program needs and plan and deliver resources such as webinars, toolkits, in-person trainings and workshops, and one-on-one assistance.
- DP18-1805 is a cooperative agreement with the American Cancer Society and the George Washington Cancer Institute for the “Provision of Technical Assistance and Training Activities to Assure Comprehensive Cancer Control Outcomes.” The two funded organizations provide support to comprehensive cancer control (CCC) constituents by—
- Assessing programmatic needs.
- Assisting with capacity building.
- Leveraging partnerships to enhance comprehensive cancer control efforts.
- Implementing a technical assistance and training plan.
- Evaluating technical assistance and training efforts.
The American Cancer Society (ACS) provides training and technical assistance to NCCCPs. The organization:
- Helps the NCCCPs build and maintain strong partnerships with their coalitions.
- Develops and delivers trainings to the NCCCPs on local implementation (cancer control and prevention at the community level), evaluation, and communication.
- Helps the NCCCPs build strong partnerships with cancer prevention, screening, and follow-up providers (community clinics, physicians, navigators).
- Develops and makes available resource materials such as the Policy, Systems, and Environmental (PSE) Change Resource Guide.[PDF-3.5MB]
The George Washington Cancer Institute (GW) developed and maintains the Cancer Control Technical Assistance Portal (TAP), an online resource for the NCCCPs. TAP includes:
- A resource repository containing cancer control and prevention resources from CDC, GW, the Comprehensive Cancer Control National Partners (CCCNP), cancer control coalitions, and other CCC stakeholders.
- The GW Cancer Control Technical Assistance Periodical, a monthly e-newsletter that highlights new webinars, trainings, events, resources, and funding opportunities.
- An archive for webinars and online learning modules produced by GW.
- DP18-1808 cooperative agreement, Networking2Save: CDC’s National Network Approach to Preventing and Controlling Tobacco-related Cancers in Special Populations is a collaboration between CDC’s Division of Cancer Prevention and Control (DCPC) and Office on Smoking and Health (OSH). This collaborative approach provides NCCCP awardees assistance addressing tobacco- and cancer-related health disparities through the following national networks for these specific populations:
- Asian Pacific Partners for Empowerment and Leadership (APPEAL) supports the RAISE Network (Reaching Asian Americans Pacific Islanders through Innovative Strategies to Achieve Equity in Tobacco Control and Cancer Prevention) serving Asian American, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Island populations
- Community Anti-Drug Coalitions of America supports the Geographic Health Equity Alliance for geographically defined populations
- Inter-Tribal Council of Michigan, Inc. supports the National Native Network serving American Indian and Alaska Native Populations
- National African American Tobacco Prevention Network, Inc. supports the National African American Tobacco Prevention Network* for African American populations
- National Alliance for Hispanic Health supports the Nuestras Voces Network serving Hispanic populations
- National Council for Behavioral Health supports the National Behavioral Health Network for Tobacco and Cancer Control serving individuals with mental health and substance use disorders
- National LGBT Cancer Network serving Lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, and transgender populations
- Patient Advocate Foundation supports the SelfMade Health Network serving individuals with low socio-economic status
Each national network focuses on training and technical assistance; engagement of priority populations in national, state, tribal, territorial interventions; and mass-reach health communications that complement OSH, DCPC, and other CDC-funded chronic disease programs.
