Victorian Cancer Survivorship Program | 2018 Capacity Building Grants funding

The Department of Health and Human Services, through the Victorian Cancer Survivorship Program: Phase II, has opened a  2018 Type 1, Capacity Building Grants funding round, to build on the successes already achieved in cancer survivorship care.

The grants will provide up to $100,000 to eligible services, to fund a maximum of five projects over the course of 12 months.

Services can leverage existing funding or initiatives, adopt an existing model or address a specific survivorship matter or resource need. The funding is for projects that re-design services, develop new models of care, develop new resources etc.

The 2018, Type 1 funding round will have a specific focus on underserved groups including:

  • People with low survival cancers
  • New treatments extending the period of survivorship
  • Aboriginal Victorians
  • Elderly / frail
  • Culturally and linguistically diverse (CALD)
  • Low socio-economic status
  • Rural and regional areas

This funding scheme is now open and will close at  2pm on 13 February 2018.
