Grants of up to $50,000 to Central and East Central Texas nonprofit organizations and government agencies in eligible counties for breast cancer programs and services for vulnerable populations. Funding is intended for programs that can address critical community needs among the underserved and minorities by reducing barriers, offering patient navigation, and providing breast cancer education.

Applicants must provide services to residents of one or more of the following Texas counties: Anderson, Angelina, Bastrop, Bell, Blanco, Bosque, Brazos, Burleson, Burnet,Caldwell, Camp, Cherokee, Coryell, Ellis, Falls, Fayette, Freestone, Gillespie, Gregg, Hamilton, Harrison, Hays, Henderson, Hill, Houston, Jasper, Kaufman, Lampasas, Lee, Leon, Limestone, Llano, Madison, Marion, Mason, McLennan, Milam, Mills, Nacogdoches, Navarro, Newton, Panola, Rains, Robertson, Rusk, Sabine, San Augustine, San Saba, Shelby,   Smith, Travis, Trinity, Tyler, Upshure, Washington, Williamson, Wood, and Van Zandt Counties.

Funding priority areas are:

  • 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 residing in eligible counties.
  • 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).

To reduce confusion and reinforce learning, Komen will only fund projects that use approved educational messages and materials that are consistent with Komen messages. Please be sure that your organization can agree to promote the messages listed here: http://ww5.komen.org/BreastCancer/BreastSelfAwareness.html.

If an applicant wants to develop educational resources, they must discuss with Komen prior to application submission and provide evidence of need for the resource.

Guidance on crafting SMART objectives is located here: https://ww5.komen.org/WritingSMARTObjectives.html.
