More than 80 percent of CoC State Chairs are actively involved in the development and/or implementation of their state’s cancer plan, and they are encouraging their state cancer teams to include objectives that invovle the CoC and the delivery of quality care at CoC-Approved Programs within their states. Currently six states-Connecticut, Georgia, Pennsylvania, Nebraska,

Louisiana, and New Jersey-have already included specific strategies that ensure the provision of quality services by referral to CoC-Approved Programs. Complete versions of these six state cancer plans can be viewed at http://www.cdc.gov/cancer/ncccp/index.htm.
