CCSG 101

The Cancer Center Support Grant (CCSG) from the NCI is the major source of federal funding (~$7M total costs/year) for the HDFCCC. Receiving this grant also denotes our Comprehensive Cancer Center status. Specifically, it is the infrastructure grant (P30) that funds:
  • Senior Leadership
  • Planning and Evaluation (Leadership Retreats, External Advisory Board Meeting, Program Retreats)
  • Developmental Funds (Pilot Projects, Staff Investigators)
  • Administration
  • Research Programs (partial salary support for Leaders and Co-Leaders)
  • Shared Resources (Core Directors, Managers, support staff, technicians, etc.)
  • Clinical Trials infrastructure (Clinical Research Support Office, Protocol Review and Monitoring System, Data and Safety Monitoring)
  • Community Outreach and Engagement
  • Cancer Research Career Enhancement
 
This is a five-year grant, with non-competing renewals (progress reports) due every year on April 1, and competing renewals due every 5 years on September 25 (next competing renewal due date: September 25, 2023).
 
The Scientific Programs Administration team is responsible for ensuring compliance with reporting requirements and submitting the reports and renewal submissions.

Acknowledging the CCSG

Did you use a HDFCCC Shared Resource? Are you funded by CCSG pilot, supplemental, or EPCRS funds?

If so, you must acknowledge the CCSG parent grant in all publications, press releases, and presentations that are a direct result of support from HDFCCC shared resources or funding sources.

The grant number for the CCSG is: P30CA082103

Only 10 publications correctly acknowledged the CCSG in 2014 – this number is far too low! The only way we can “claim” these publications in our annual reports and in our competing renewal is if you acknowledge them by including the CCSG grant number—we cannot do this retroactively.
