Grants of up to $50,000 to Virginia nonprofit organizations and government agencies for breast health and breast cancer services in eligible areas. Applicants are required to submit a Letter of Intent prior to submitting a full proposal. Funding is intended to support projects and programs that provide screening and diagnostic services, education, transportation assistance, treatment, and patient navigation assistance.

Applicants must provide services to residents of one or more of the following locations: 

  • Cities of: Buena Vista, Bristol, Covington, Danville, Galax, Lexington, Lynchburg, Martinsville, Norton, Radford, Roanoke, Salem
  • Counties of: Alleghany, Amherst, Bath, Bedford, Bland, Botetourt, Campbell, Carroll, Craig, Dickenson, Floyd, Franklin, Giles, Grayson, Henry, Lee, Montgomery, Patrick, Pittsylvania, Pulaski, Roanoke, Rockbridge, Russell, Scott, Smyth, Tazewell, Washington, Wise, Wythe

Funding will be awarded for breast health or breast cancer screening, treatment, education, or support projects in the 42 city/county service area. Proposed projects must be specific to breast health and/or breast cancer and address the following priorities: 

  1. No or Low-Cost Screenings and Diagnostic Services: Evidence-based projects that provide low- or no-cost screening and/or diagnostic services, mobile mammography, and co-pay and/or deductible assistance. 
  2. Patient Navigation: Projects that provide evidence-based patient navigation for specifically high-risk groups. Patient navigation must follow the individual from abnormal screening to diagnostic resolution and through treatment, if necessary.
  3. Reducing Other Barriers to Care: Komen seeks to fund projects that help dismantle barriers to care for those in need. Individuals can experience financial, geographical, and educational barriers to care in southwest Virginia. Programs under this priority must fall into at least one of the following categories focused on reducing these barriers: (a) Transportation assistance (through direct service or gas cards), and  (b) Breast Health Education.
