Florida lawmakers refused to accept money for cancer control programs

The old Florida capitol (Pic by Diligent Terrier, via Wikimedia Commons) Among the long list of federal health grants the state has shunned in past year was a small award that would have “reduced the burden of cancer.” A spokesperson for the Florida Department of Health tells The Florida Independent that budget authority was denied for a competitive grant “awarded to Florida beginning October 2010 for $175,000 yearly.” The DP10-1017 “Demonstrating the Capacity of Comprehensive Cancer Control Programs to Implement Policy and Environmental Cancer Control Interventions” grant was a “five-year grant built on strengths of existing statewide Cancer Control and Research Advisory Council (C-CRAB) working with four regional cancer collaboratives to reduce the burden of cancer,” according to the Department of Health. The grant did not require any contributions from the state. The grant was just one of many that has been rejected by the state.
