Grants of up to $2,500 to New York nonprofits to begin new programs or test new ideas that will increase the innovative capacity and effectiveness of breast health programs that serve low income and uninsured patients in the greater New York City area. Proposals focusing on capacity building should enhance an organization’s ability to provide services by redesigning processes, implementing new practices, or developing collaborations or partnerships.
Priority populations include African American/Black and Hispanic women and other vulnerable groups and should ensure early screening, detection and treatment. Priority areas include Bronx, Kings, Richmond, Rockland, Westchester, and Suffolk Counties. Special emphasis should be placed on Rockland and Richmond Counties and the East End of Long Island.
Some examples of specific projects that could be funded under these grant guidelines include:
- An organization applied for a grant from the Greater NYC Affiliate and the application was declined. In an effort to improve the application, the organization could design a project that addresses the concerns identified during the review process, and, as a secondary outcome, enhance the organization’s application for the next grant application cycle.
- A current grantee realizes that its program is ineffective or could be more effective (for example, 1,000 women are receiving educational information, but only seven sought a mammogram or an organization continually underutilizes its funding). The organization could apply for a grant to help evaluate and then redesign their project with the goal of improving their project’s outcomes and effectiveness.
