Grants starting at $5,000 to USA nonprofit organizations and government agencies in eligible areas to provide breast cancer education, reduce barriers to care, and provide patient navigation. Requests from eligible counties in Iowa, Illinois, Nebraska, and South Dakota will be accepted.
Susan G. Komen is the world’s largest breast cancer organization, funding more breast cancer research than any other nonprofit outside of the U.S. government while providing real-time help to those facing the disease. Komen has set a bold goal to reduce the current number of breast cancer deaths by 50 percent in the U.S. by 2026. Komen Greater Iowa supports breast cancer projects that address the following funding priority areas:
1. Patient Navigation - Projects that provide evidence-based patient navigation for:
Patient navigation must follow the individual from abnormal screening to diagnostic resolution and through treatment, if necessary. Patient navigators offer interventions that may vary from patient to patient along the continuum of care and include a combination of informational, emotional, and practical support (i.e., breast cancer education, counseling, care coordination, health system navigation, and access to transportation, language services and financial resources).
2. Reducing Barriers to Care - Evidence-based projects that reduce barriers to quality breast cancer care experienced by uninsured and underinsured individuals residing in:
Komen seeks to fund projects that provide no cost or low-cost screening/diagnostic/treatment services, mobile mammography, diagnostic/treatment copay and deductible assistance, transportation, interpreter services, childcare/eldercare, financial assistance for daily living expenses or medical treatment assistance for those receiving breast cancer treatment.
3. Breast Cancer Education - Projects that provide evidence-based and culturally relevant breast cancer education in one-on-one and group settings. Projects must be designed to result in documented age appropriate, breast cancer action (e.g., getting a screening mammogram, obtaining recommended follow-up after an abnormal mammogram). Projects should include Komen’s breast self-awareness messages, if appropriate, based on the need, audience and purpose of the educational project. Projects must provide evidence of linkage to local breast cancer services and include follow up with participants.
Based on findings from the Community Profile, these projects should target:
