Grants to New York nonprofit organizations and government entities for research related to breast cancer. Nonprofit applicants must complete required registrations and prequalifications prior to submitting a proposal. Funding is intended to support new approaches and methods in breast cancer research.

The HRSB wishes to stimulate and support research related to breast cancer biology, causation, prevention, detection or screening, treatment (including treatment of its effects), survivorship or cure. Any investigative approach appropriate to the application topic may be pursued, including, but not limited to, basic, translational, clinical, demographic, mapping, epidemiological, environmental, behavioral or psychosocial research. 

The Rowley mechanism provides researchers the opportunity to try new methods and approaches in breast cancer research. These projects are self-contained research projects.  

Responsive applications include the following projects:

  • Highly speculative, exploratory, or high-risk – may not have preliminary data, but have the potential for high scientific payoff
  • Application or development of state-of-the-art technologies, tools or resources for breast cancer research
  • Innovative or developmental – focus on exceptionally promising topics and have some pilot data, but not yet sufficiently mature to compete successfully for funding for a full-scale study
  • Testing new hypotheses based on research grounded in a non-breast cancer research area

Estimated Size of Grant:

The annual direct costs for a single award are capped at $150,000 per year.

Term of Contract:

It is expected that contracts resulting from this RFA will have the following time period: 1/1/2023-12/31/2024, for a multi-year term of up to two years. Contracts will not be renewable.

Additional Eligibility Criteria:

The applicant must be a not-for-profit organization or governmental organization in New York State. Awarded organizations will be expected to monitor the use of funds, maintain individual accounts and fulfill other fiscal management criteria. Subcontracting and collaborating organizations may include public, not-for-profit and for-profit entities within or outside of New York State.

The eligible Principal Investigator/Project Director (PI/PD) is designated by the application organization, has the skills, knowledge, and resources necessary to carry out the proposed Workplan, and is not a postdoctoral fellow or other dependent research staff. An eligible organization is not limited to the number of applications it can submit in response to this RFA provided that each application is scientifically distinct. However, the eligible PI/PD may submit only one application in response to this RFA, regardless of the organization under which (s)he submits the applications. If an eligible PI/PD submits more than one application, all applications from that PI/PD will be disqualified and will not be forwarded to peer review.

Eligibility to apply also includes the following mandatory items:
- The PI/PD is not restricted from receiving Public Health Service (PHS) funding or debarred by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) or any other federal or New York State government entity
- The applicant organization is Prequalified in the NYS Grants Gateway, if not exempt (see RFA Section IV. M.)
- The PI/PD has not submitted more than one application
- The application does not propose support for a research center
- The application does not propose support for a Phase III clinical trial
- The application does not propose expansion of enrollment for an ongoing clinical trial

Funds are not intended to fund smaller components of larger research projects, solely for data collection, for incremental or correlative research aims, or for compression of a larger project into a smaller time frame.
