Grants starting at $5,001 to Lubbock Area, Texas nonprofit organizations and government agencies to support breast cancer-related projects. Funding is avaible for projects that increase access to support resources, screening and diagnostic services, and breast cancer treatment.

Komen West Texas will award community grants to organizations that will provide breast cancer projects that address specific funding priorities, which were selected based on data from the 2015 Komen Lubbock Area Community Profile Report.

The funding priority areas for the South Plains are listed below in order of importance, based on the needs identified in the Community Profile:

1. Access to Screening and Diagnostic Services:

Programs that increase access to screening and diagnostic services for uninsured and underinsured people ages 40 and over, those who have barriers to care including financial and/or travel distance, ethnicities who have lower screening rates, and those who face health care disparities. 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”. The Affiliate seeks to fund programs that provide no-cost or low-cost mammograms, ultrasounds, biopsies, and MRIs.

Examples of successful projects include those that:
-Decrease time from referral to screening;
-Increase the number of people who utilize regular breast cancer screening;
-Increase the number of “never screened” people getting breast cancer screening;
-Reduce time from abnormal screening to diagnostic procedures; and
-Reduce the number of people “lost to follow‐up.”

While applications will be accepted for programs providing services throughout the Affiliate’s South Plains communities, priority will be given to applicants that demonstrate benefit to one or more of the following target communities:
-Hale County
-Hockley County
-Lamb County

2. Access to Treatment and Support Resources:

Programs that increase access to screening and diagnostic services for uninsured and underinsured people ages 40 and over, those who have barriers to care including financial and/or travel distance, ethnicities who have lower screening rates, and those who face health care disparities. The Affiliate seeks to fund programs that provide no-cost or low-cost breast cancer treatment (including, but not limited to, chemotherapy, and radiation) and services (including, but not limited to, co-pay/deductible assistance, food, transportation, lodging, medication, lymph node drainage, lymphedema garments.

Examples of successful projects include those that:
-Decrease time from referral to screening;
-Increase the number of people who utilize regular breast cancer screening;
-Increase the number of “never screened” people getting breast cancer screening;
-Reduce time from abnormal screening to diagnostic procedures;
-Reduce time from diagnostic finding to treatment;
-Reduce the number of people “lost to follow‐up;” and
-Increase treatment compliance.

While applications will be accepted for programs providing services throughout the Affiliate’s South Plains communities, priority will be given to applicants that demonstrate benefit to one or more of the following target communities:
-Hale County
-Hockley County
-Lamb County

Any one grant application seeking funding in more than one of the bolded funding priority areas above will not be accepted. Eligible applicants may apply for funding in more than one funding priority area above, but a separate application responsive to this RFA must be submitted for each funding priority area. Community outreach and education programs will only be funded through Small Grant applications.
