Grants starting at $10,000 to Texas nonprofits and agencies for programs that address breast health for African American women living in the DeSoto Lancaster, Cedar Hill, and South Dallas areas of Dallas County. Applicants must have attended a grant workshop to be eligible to apply.
Drawing from the Community Profile, Komen Dallas County has identified the following funding priority:
To reduce the burden of late stage diagnosis and breast cancer mortality disparities experienced by African American women living in the community through programs that provide breast health education, navigation, and/or medical services for African American women living in Cedar Hill, DeSoto Lancaster, and South Dallas.
To address this disparity, the affiliate is seeking applications for:
Reducing Barriers to Care.
Evidence-based programs that reduce barriers to quality breast cancer care experienced by uninsured and underinsured individuals residing in Dallas County. “Underinsured is defined as having some insurance coverage but not enough, or when one is insured yet unable to afford the out-of-pocket responsibilities not covered by his or her insurer” (Patient Advocate Foundation).
Komen Dallas County gives highest priority to programs that focus on delivery of no cost or low-cost screening/diagnostic/treatment services, mobile mammography, diagnostic/treatment co-pay and deductible assistance, transportation assistance, and pharmaceutical prescription assistance. Komen Dallas County gives secondary priority to programs that deliver interpreter services, childcare/eldercare, and financial assistance for daily living expenses (e.g. rent, groceries, utilities, electricity, etc.).
Community Health Workers.
Evidence-based programs incorporating the use of community health workers (CHWs) who are fluent in and sensitive to the language and culture of the audience that the health care programs want to reach with positive breast health messages. These projects focus on providing in-depth breast cancer education and outreach that link patients to care and result in completed breast cancer clinical services (e.g. clinical breast exams, screening mammograms, etc.).
Projects need to have pre-test/post-test tools to evaluate the change in the participant’s knowledge about breast cancer risk, screening recommendations, and utilizing the health care system to access recommended screening.
Evidence-based programs providing culturally appropriate patient navigation through the full continuum of care from abnormal screening to diagnostic resolution and through treatment, if necessary. Patient navigation is a process by which a trained individual guides patients through and around barriers in the complex breast cancer care system. The primary focus of a patient navigator is on the individual patient, with responsibilities centered on coordinating and improving access to timely diagnostic and treatment services tailored to individual needs.
Patient navigators offer interventions that may vary from patient to patient along the continuum of care and include a combination of information, emotional, and practical support (i.e., breast cancer education, counseling, care coordination, health system navigation, and access to transportation, language services, and financial resources).
Examples of successful projects include those that result in:
- An increase in delivery of breast health services to the African-American population, in particular;
- An increase in breast health action due to knowledge gained;
- An increase in the number of “never screened” women getting breast cancer screening;
- A reduction in the number of women “lost to follow‐up;”
- A reduction in time from abnormal screening to diagnostic procedures;
- A reduction in time from diagnostic resolution to treatment;
- An increase in treatment compliance
Funds may be requested for the following types of expenses, provided they are directly attributable to the project:
- Key personnel/salaries
- Patient care
- Other direct project expenses
- Equipment, including software, not to exceed $5,000 total, essential to the breast health‐related project to be conducted
