Assessment and planning

The Assessment and Planning Process is the foundation activity and guide for organizations to identify the needs of and existing activities related to promoting and improving the prevention and early detection of breast, cervical and colorectal cancer among underserved women and men served by and living within the service area of their organization.
When this process is complete organizations will use the results to inform their continuing application and budget, including assessing how and what strategies (Targeted Community Outreach, Clinic Quality Improvement, Health Navigation and Clinical Services) shall be added or removed from the statement of work.
This process is repeated annually to give organizations and CDPHE the opportunity to identify and respond to changing needs by shifting strategies and/or funding needs (See Section 1: Grant Management of the Program Manual for additional information about timelines).
