Grants of up to $28,000 and grants of up to $80,000 to Florida governmental and nonprofit organizations in eligible counties for projects that reduce breast cancer mortality among residents. Funding is intended for increasing access to timely and quality care, addressing disparities, providing breast cancer education, and providing patient navigation services. Eligible projects will operate in any Florida county except Broward, Miami-Dade, and Monroe.

Project focus areas:

Patient Navigation

Projects that provide evidence-based patient navigation for individuals with limited financial resources (at 200 percent below the Federal Poverty Guidelines) to achieve optimal breast health outcomes. Priority will be given to evidence-based projects that target the following populations that are at greater risk for late-stage diagnosis and/or breast cancer death: seniors, Hispanic/Latina women, women of African descent, and women of Ashkenazi Jewish descent. Patient navigation must follow the individual from abnormal screening to diagnostic resolution and through treatment, if necessary. 

Reducing Barriers to Care

Evidence-based projects that reduce barriers to quality breast cancer care experienced by uninsured and underinsured individuals to achieve optimal breast health outcomes. Priority will be given to evidence-based projects that target the higher-risk populations mentioned above. Komen Florida seeks to fund projects that provide no-cost or low-cost screening/diagnostic/treatment services, mobile mammography, diagnostic/treatment copay and deductible assistance, transportation, interpreter services, childcare/eldercare, financial assistance for daily living expenses or medical treatment assistance for those receiving breast cancer treatment.

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 age-appropriate, breast cancer action (e.g., getting a screening mammogram, obtaining recommended follow-up after an abnormal mammogram). Projects should target individuals with limited financial resources to achieve optimal breast health outcomes. Breast cancer education projects should include Komen’s breast self-awareness messages, if appropriate, based on the need, audience and purpose of the educational project. Health fairs and mass media campaigns are not evidence-based interventions and will not be accepted.
