Overview:

Background

Maine Cancer Foundation was started in 1976 by a group of concerned citizens eager to do more for Maine in the fight against cancer. We lead a state-wide effort to promote and support the most promising and effective cancer-fighting programs available to the people of Maine through a combination of grant-based financial support and coalition building.

Our Mission 

Maine Cancer Foundation is dedicated to reducing cancer incidence and mortality rates in Maine. 100% of funds raised by the Foundation are used to benefit the people of Maine.

Patient Navigator Grants

Maine Cancer Foundation is currently accepting applications for three-year capacity-building grants to create or expand navigator positions that will identify and eliminate barriers that prevent individuals from getting high quality cancer care in Maine. 

Funding Criteria 

Maine Cancer Foundation is accepting proposals for three-year capacity-building grants to create or expand navigator positions that will identify and eliminate barriers that prevent individuals from getting high quality cancer care in Maine.

Proposals should include evidence-based patient navigator programming. However, the Foundation does not require that Patient Navigators have clinical credentials. The Foundation is particularly interested in supporting projects that assist rural and minority populations in Maine.

Areas of Focus 

Navigator roles should focus on: 

  • Cancer prevention, early detection, or treatment 
  • Efforts that will reduce cancer incidence and mortality rates in Maine
  • Reducing barriers to cancer care in Maine

Within the application, the need for the new patient navigator role must be supported by a community needs assessment and describe clear, patient-centered goals.

The award will be structured to provide: 

  • Year One: Up to $80,000 
  • Year Two: 70% of year one
  • Year Three: 35% of year one
