Funding is intended for programs and projects in the areas of breast cancer treatment, screening, education, outreach, treatment, patient navigation, and additional services not otherwise available for the medically underserved populations in the Funding Source's 91-county service area.

All projects must have at least one Specific Measurable Attainable Realistic Time-bound (SMART) objective that will be accomplished with Komen funding and can be evaluated including an estimated timeline and the anticipated number of individuals to be served.
