Grants of up to $50,000 to nonprofit organizations that provide innovative breast health and breast cancer services to disadvantaged communities. Applicants must attend an application workshop on December 1 or 2, 2016. Priority will be given to organizations serving the following communities:

- Black/African-American females in the State of Arizona
- Hispanic females in the State of Arizona
- Maricopa County
- Mohave County
- Santa Cruz County
- Yavapai County

Priority populations include the medically underserved, uninsured or underinsured. “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.”

Specifically, this program seeks to fund evidence-based programs that increase access to breast cancer services that will lead to a decrease in breast cancer late-stage diagnosis and mortality and an increase in timely, quality breast cancer care. This includes, but is not limited to, programs that provide no cost or low cost breast cancer services, financial assistance with diagnostic and/or treatment co-pays/deductibles, transportation assistance and patient navigation.

For the purposes of this grant, 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).
