Grants ranging from $10,000 to $50,000 to Maryland nonprofit organizations and governmental agencies for breast cancer related programs. including Patient Navigation and Reducing Barriers to Care. Funding priority will be given to grant applications that are specifically designed to increase access to breast cancer screening and diagnostic services and to reduce barriers to care through navigation for uninsured and underinsured:

The funding priority areas are listed below in no particular order based on the needs identified in the Community Profile:
Projects that provide evidence-based patient navigation for African American and/or Latina women that reside in Baltimore City and Baltimore County in Central Maryland; African American and/or Latina women that reside in Dorchester, Somerset, Wicomico, and Worcester Counties on the Eastern Shore; women that reside in Calvert and Charles Counties in Southern Maryland; and/or women that reside in Allegany and Washington Counties in Western Maryland. 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 African American and/or Latina women that reside in Baltimore City and Baltimore County in Central Maryland; African American and/or Latina women that reside in Dorchester, Somerset, Wicomico, and Worcester Counties on the Eastern Shore; women that reside in Calvert and Charles Counties in Southern Maryland; and/or women that reside in Allegany and Washington Counties in Western Maryland. “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, http://www.patientadvocate.org/resources.php?p=781).
The Affiliate seeks to fund projects that, through navigation services, provide no cost or low cost screening/diagnostic/treatment services, diagnostic/treatment co-pay and deductible assistance, transportation, interpreter services, and/or meals for the during active treatment.
