Through this Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) on Cancer Control Research in Persistent Poverty Areas (Persistent Poverty Initiative), the National Cancer Institute (NCI) intends to provide resources to support the time and effort of transdisciplinary teams in collaboration with institutions/clinics/communities/tribes to develop a cancer prevention and control research program and provide support to early-career investigators (including pre- and post-doctoral researchers) that focuses on and serves populations living in persistent poverty census tracts. The long-term goal of this initiative is to build capacity in persistent poverty census tracts to foster cancer prevention and control research and promote the implementation of programs and practices in institutions/clinics/communities/tribes to alleviate the effects of persistent poverty. For this FOA, any reference to the community includes tribes and tribal organizations.
