Grants to Greater Atlanta, Georgia nonprofits and government agencies for breast cancer screening and patient support. Applicants must view the online workshop prior to applying. Funding is intended to increase access to screening and diagnostic services. Priority will be given to evidence-based projects that aim to reduce barriers to quality breast cancer care experienced primarily by African American women residing in Cherokee, Clayton, Cobb, Coweta, DeKalb, Douglas, Fayette, Forsyth, Fulton, Gwinnett, Henry, Newton and Rockdale counties.

All applicants are required to develop project objective(s) to reduce breast cancer mortality by addressing disparities, increasing access to quality and timely care, and/or improving outcomes through patient navigation.

Komen Atlanta seeks to fund projects that provide no cost or low-cost screening/diagnostic services, mobile mammography, screening and diagnostic co-pay and deductible assistance, transportation services, interpreter services and education programs for uninsured and underinsured individuals who live at or below 250% of the federal poverty level.  Projects must indicate how they will address any transportation and/or translation barriers that patients may face. 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.

If projects incorporate an education program, the education portion of the budget cannot exceed 20% of total funding. Education programs must be evidence-based and designed to result in documented age-appropriate, breast cancer action. 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.

For information about allowable costs, see:

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.
