Connecting community with campus to address cancer health disparities: a community grants program model.
Prog Community Health Partnersh. 2011 Summer; 5(2):207-12.PC

Abstract

BACKGROUND

With growing interest in the CBPR approach to cancer health disparities research, mechanisms are needed to support adherence to its principles. The Carolina Community Network (CCN), 1 of 25 Community Network Programs funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI), developed a model for providing funds to community-based organizations.

OBJECTIVES

This paper presents the rationale and structure of a Community Grants Program (CGP) model, describes the steps taken to implement the program, and discusses the lessons learned and recommendations for using the grants model for CBPR.

METHODS

Three types of projects-cancer education, implementation of an evidence-based intervention, and the development of community-academic research partnerships-could be supported by a community grant. The CGP consists of four phases: Pre-award, peer-review process, post-award, and project implementation.

RESULTS

The CGP serves as a catalyst for developing and maintaining community-academic partnerships through its incorporation of CBPR principles.

CONCLUSIONS

Providing small grants to community-based organizations can identify organizations to serve as community research partners, fostering the CBPR approach in the development of community-academic partnerships by sharing resources and building capacity.
