Grants of up to $10,000 to Northwest Arkansas and Southwest Missouri nonprofits for breast health education projects, travel and conference scholarships. Funding is intended to increase the capacity of effective breast health and breast cancer screening programs.

In addition, Komen Ozark will be funding capacity building and infrastructure development projects to assist with addressing the following priorities:
1) Increasing education and outreach efforts for rural women and the Hispanic/Latina population in the service area.
2) Increasing the awareness of available screening services and knowledge of breast health in Boone, Madison and Newton Counties in Arkansas.
3) Expanding awareness and outreach regarding breast health in Stone and Taney Counties, Missouri.
4) Utilizing partnerships to enhance patient navigation and advocacy.
5) Increasing the application and understanding of topics centered on survivorship.

The following types of grants are available through this program:

Educational/Outreach Grants
Purpose: To explore new approaches to reach target communities and provide opportunities to creatively meet identified educational or outreach needs.

Travel Grants
Purpose: To assist grantees and health care professionals to attend, participate in and/or present at meetings, conferences or symposia that would increase the community knowledge of breast cancer. Travel grants must be awarded to an organization, not to an individual.

Conference Grants
Purpose: To support other organizations in presenting local scientific or educational conferences, with an emphasis on those that enhance the interaction between the advocate, healthcare and scientific communities. The content must focus on breast cancer or breast cancer must make up a significant part of the conference.

Capacity Building Grants
Purpose: To support the development of well-defined projects or to help build organizational infrastructure by providing funds to refine/improve skills, strategies or organizational systems.
