Worksite Cancer Screening Grant
The South Dakota Department of Health’s Cancer Programs are pleased to announce the release of the Worksite Cancer Screening Policy Implementation Grant Request for Applications (RFA). This is an opportunity for worksites to promote recommended cancer screening tests that may find breast, cervical, lung, and colorectal cancers early, when treatment is likely to work best.
All South Dakota worksites are eligible to apply for funding. Worksites may request up to $5,000. Up to five applicants will be funded.
