Bethesda, Md – CureSearch for Children’s Cancer announced today the opening of the application window for funding for $10,000 per award with up to a maximum of $250,000 in total awards for the 2017 Community Impact Awards.

These awards are open to applicants from hospitals and medical institutions engaging in pediatric oncology care. They focus on two program areas:

  • Psycho-social resources or programs for pediatric cancer patients and families.
  • Caregiver resources and training for pediatric cancer care providers to improve psychosocial outcomes.

The aim of these community-based awards is to augment institutional support to accelerate and deliver the highest quality care to children with cancer. CureSearch will fund meritorious projects with quantitative, measurable impacts on patient-centered outcomes and community engagement.

The CureSearch Community Impact Awards address programs/resources that support families and pediatric cancer patients in coping with emotional, mental and other anxieties associated with cancer diagnosis, treatment and survivorship. Projects aim to improve behavioral and psychological outcomes for pediatric cancer patients.

The application window opens Monday, July 17th via Proposal Central, with award notifications released in November 2017. Funding will be provided January 1. 2018 – December 31, 2018.
