Grants starting at $5,000 to Kentucky and Indiana nonprofit organizations and government agencies for breast cancer education, screening, treatment, and support services, particularly to underserved residents in eligible areas. Projects must address the following priority areas (in no particular order):
- Projects that provide evidence-based patient navigation for Black/African-American women that reside in Jefferson County, KY; women residing in the rural KY Counties of Clay, Clinton, Jackson, McCreary, Oldham, Owsley, Shelby, Spencer, and Wayne; and women residing in Floyd County, IN.
- Patient navigation must follow the individual from abnormal screening to diagnostic resolution and through treatment, if necessary.
- Patient navigation is a process by which a trained individual- patient navigator- 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 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).
Reducing Barriers to Care
- Evidence-based projects that reduce barriers to quality breast cancer care experienced by uninsured and underinsured individuals residing in Clay, Clinton, Jackson, McCreary, Owsley and Wayne Counties in KY.
“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,
The Affiliate seeks to fund projects that provide no-cost or low-cost screening/diagnostic/treatment services, mobile mammography, transportation and interpreter services.
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 ageappropriate, breast cancer action (e.g., getting a screening mammogram, obtaining recommended follow-up after an abnormal mammogram). Based on findings from the Community Profile, these projects should target Black/African-American and/or Hispanic/Latina individuals that reside in Anderson, Bourbon, Clark, Fayette, Scott, and/or Woodford Counties in KY, as well as individuals residing in the rural KY Counties of Clay, Clinton, Jackson, McCreary, Owsley, and Wayne.
- Breast cancer education projects must include Komen’s breast self-awareness messages and provide evidence of linkage to local breast cancer services. Health fairs and mass media campaigns are not evidence-based interventions and will not be accepted.
Examples of successful projects include those that:
- Increase breast cancer action due to increased knowledge;
- Increase the number of “never screened” women getting breast cancer screening;
- Reduce the number of women “lost to follow‐up;”
- Reduce time from abnormal screening to diagnostic procedures;
- Reduce time from diagnostic resolution to treatment;
- Increase 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)
