Grants to Oregon individuals affiliated with government bodies, community organizations and groups, schools, health systems, and businesses to address needs related to cancer. Applicants are required to submit an intent to apply form prior to submitting a full proposal.

The OHSU Knight Cancer Institute created the Community Partnership Program (CPP) to support the development of sustainable collaborations with Oregon communities to address community-identified cancer needs. Grants will fund projects anywhere along the cancer continuum from prevention and early detection to survivorship. Proposals that focus on addressing and/or are working directly with populations facing cancer-related health disparities are highly encouraged.

Funding is available in three different tiers: Tier 1 (Define Need), Tier 2 (Develop and Pilot) and Tier 3 (Evaluate and Sustain). These tiers provide the framework and resources to build projects over time while allowing for funding opportunities to be open to as wide a variety of applicants as possible. For further information about grant tiers, see

The mission of the Community Partnership Program is to work hand in hand with Oregon communities as allies in the Knight Cancer Institute’s efforts to end cancer. Through grantmaking, training/technical assistance and networking the program aims to:

  • Support Oregon communities in identifying and addressing their most pressing cancer-related needs.
  • Enhance collaboration between Oregon communities and OHSU to address local cancer issues and cancer health disparities.
  • Foster the skills and abilities of Oregon communities to ensure efforts to address local cancer issues are sustainable long-term.

The Community Partnership Program highly encourages proposals that address cancer-related health disparities and increase equity for Oregon communities that have been historically disadvantaged and/or marginalized. Organizations that are led by and/or those that are committed to serving populations facing cancer health disparities are highly encouraged to apply.

By supporting communities who aim to eliminate cancer-related health disparities, the Community Partnership Program can help reduce the disproportionate impact of cancer. Proposals that use evidence-based approaches to address cancer-related health disparities, including disparities related to race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, gender identity, sexual orientation, geographic location and disability are highly encouraged.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

Projects proposing research that directly benefits OHSU or an OHSU affiliated individual/department are not eligible for funding.

While the Community Partnership Program encourages collaboration between community organizations and experts in the field, funds are not intended to solely support the work of an individual who is not affiliated with a community organization.

Individuals affiliated with an academic institution or university are required to partner with a local community-based organization to ensure funds are invested into the target community. This partnership should include collaboration on proposal development and, if funded, the partner should contribute to or lead project implementation.

Funds may not be used for:
- Applications from academic institutions - funds may not be used to support Faculty salary (staff support is allowed).
- Debt reduction.
- Individual equipment items above $3,000 without a justification.
- Preparation, distribution, or use of materials to directly support or defeat proposed legislation.
- Project activities outside of Oregon.
