Access Programs

The Lung Cancer Initiative of North Carolina is dedicated to assisting those affected by lung cancer through our access programs, designed to assist patients in receiving treatment for lung cancer.  Currently, we have two access programs.

Access to Care Gas Card Program

The Lung Cancer Initiative Access to Care gas card program provides assistance to lung cancer patients while seeking treatment including clinical trials.  The goal of the program is to lessen the financial burden for patients to receive appropriate lung cancer treatment by providing gas cards.  Learn more about the Gas Card Program.

Access Grant Program

The Lung Cancer Initiative is committed to increasing access to screening, treatment and clinical trials.  The organization’s Access Grant Program is one way that we meet this commitment.  This program is intended to support local medical centers or medical practices or collaborating organizations treating or screening lung cancer patients to increase access to care.   

The Lung Cancer Initiative of North Carolina is currently awarding 3 Access Grants up to $10,000 each to assist institutions to improve access to lung cancer screening, treatment, clinical trials, molecular testing or precision medicine for uninsured or underinsured individuals.

Applications will be reviewed and Access Grants will be awarded to programs most closely meeting the focus areas.  Read more and learn how to apply.
