CDC Awards Grants for Colorectal Screening

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will award grants to help 22 states and four Indian tribes establish colorectal screening programs for the uninsured.

The grants, which range from $300,000 to $1.1 million, will be used to establish programs aimed at screening low-income patients between the ages of 50 and 64. States would have the option of selecting one of three common procedures for the screening program but also could use the funds for outreach, follow-up care or data collection, according to the CDC.
