Previously Replicated Programs
Since 2001 the Foundation’s Community Program has funded the development of over 200 programs nationwide, investing millions of dollars into programs that focus on survivors during and after treatment. In 2010 the Community Program grant process evolved into the Community Impact Project, providing the largest support we’ve ever offered through our Community Program in a calendar year.
By working with our previous grantees, national partners and new partners, the Community Impact Project replicates existing programs that have proven successful through years of evaluations. This new model has allowed us to invest more funding into direct implementation, rather than development of the program. This also enables us to increase our support to more hospitals, cancer centers and community-based organizations impacting the lives of tens of thousands of people affected by cancer.
The 2013 Community Impact Project application period closed in April. The next application period to replicate a program selected by the Foundation in your community will open in mid January 2014. If you know of a program that would be ideal for replication, or are interested in replicating a Model Program in your community please contact us at Community@LIVESTRONG.org.
Programs are chosen based on their ability to show years of success and effectiveness through evaluations, the needs of the cancer community, and requests made by constituents. To-date LIVESTRONG has replicated the following 8 programs in nearly 600 communities across the country:
