  • The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Colorectal Cancer Control Program (CRCCP) provides funding to 22 states and 4 tribal organizations across the United States until 2014. The program provides colorectal cancer screening and follow-up care to low-income men and women age 50-64 who are underinsured or uninsured. When possible, screening services are integrated with other publicly funded health programs or clinics that serve underserved populations, such as CDC’s National Breast and Cervical Early Detection Program, CDC’s WISEWOMAN Program, and the Health Resources and Services Administration’s Health Centers. Another component of CDC’s CRCCP is to increase colorectal screening by using evidence-based strategies to promote screening. The 22 states and 4 tribal organizations that received funding are Alabama, Arizona, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Iowa, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Montana, Nebraska, New Hampshire, New Mexico, New York, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, Alaska Native Tribal Health Consortium, Arctic Slope Native Association Screening for Life Program, South Puget Intertribal Planning Agency, and Southcentral Foundation.
