Solicitation Profile
The New York State (NYS) Department of Health (Department), Center for Community Health, Division of Chronic Disease Prevention, Bureau of Cancer Prevention and Control seeks applications to implement breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer screening programs to reduce cancer related morbidity, mortality, and health disparities and improve health equity among NYS residents. These programs, known as the Cancer Services Program (CSP), will facilitate access to high-quality breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer screening, and diagnostic follow-up services throughout their service regions for eligible persons. Within the CSP-eligible population, the priority for services, or populations of focus, are those who are disproportionately burdened by the increased risk of cancer or are medically unserved or underserved. These include persons who experience barriers to these services due to race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, geographic location, poverty, lack of health education, lack of culturally competent, quality care, cultural isolation, low literacy, and language. Up to 21 awards totaling $41,867,500 for 5 years will be made, one award in each of 21 service regions listed in Attachment 1 Cancer Services Program (CSP) Service Regions.

Grantees will:
• Partner with health care providers throughout their service regions to increase access to and provide free breast, cervical, and colorectal cancer screening, timely diagnostic follow-up services, and referrals to treatment to CSP-eligible persons.
• Assist eligible persons diagnosed with breast, cervical, colorectal, or prostate cancer with enrollment in the NYS Medicaid Cancer Treatment Program (MCTP) (
• Conduct community outreach throughout their service regions for CSP-eligible persons and populations of focus, linking them to community services to address their barriers to receipt of screening services, and recruiting them into the CSP for cancer screening and diagnostic follow-up services.
• Prioritize community outreach activities to reach persons from populations disproportionately affected by cancer including, but not limited to the following populations of focus: Black persons; lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, asexual (LGBTQIA+) persons; and rural populations.
