A Woman to Woman program grant recipient will receive a one-year grant of either $50,000 for a hospital based program or $25,000 for a community based organization. This grant opportunity is available to institutions with a large volume of gynecologic cancer patients and a need to provide this type of support service to patients. Grants are provided to cover the cost of a part-time Program Coordinator’s salary (can be a new hire, or a reassignment), program costs, and the patient fund (no indirect costs are allowed). It is expected that each Woman to Woman program will become self-funding after the first year.
OCRFA will provide all program materials for patients, as well as technical assistance and support, for the life of the program (even after the end of the grant period). Programs will also have access to a dedicated section of this website (under construction) available to participants only, which will feature tools to assist in the development and administration of new programs.
OCRFA is currently accepting applications for new Woman to Woman programs through May 29, 2017. To apply for a hospital based program, the guidelines can be found here. For community based organizations interested in applying, the guidelines can be found here.
