The Victorian Department of Health and Human Services would like to announce the opening of the Victorian Cancer Survivorship Grants Scheme: Phase II.
Applications are invited from services that have a role in supporting people in transition from active cancer treatment. This includes acute health services and Victorian Primary Health Networks, in strategic partnerships with primary care providers and non-government organisations.
The Phase II Grants Scheme includes three grant types and will provide up to $2.9 million to fund a maximum of 18 projects over the course of three years.
Grant type 1 (up to $100K per project): Capacity Building Grants will support services that wish to leverage existing funding or initiatives to build survivorship capacity, adopt an existing model or to address a specific survivorship matter or resource need. The funding will be aimed at projects that have a focus on areas such as service re-design, development of models of care and resource development. Up to ten projects will be funded under this grant type.
Applications close: 2.00pm, 23 February 2016
Grant type 2 (up to $300K per project): General Cancer Survivorship Grants will support innovative approaches to the delivery of survivorship care. Up to four projects will be funded under this grant type.
Applications close: 2.00pm, 1 March 2016
Grant type 3 (up to $300K per project): Primary and Community Health Grants will support greater collaboration on shared survivorship care between the acute and primary/community sectors and aim to build capacity in the primary/community sector. Up to four projects will be funded under this grant type.
Applications close: 2.00pm, 8 March 2016
A mandatory information session regarding the scheme will be held on 18 February.
