Grants starting at $10,000 to New Orleans Area, Louisiana nonprofit organizations and government agencies to support breast cancer services and projects. Priority areas include patient navigation, decreasing barriers to care, outreach, and education. Eligible applicants serve communities in Orleans, Jefferson, Plaquemines, St. Bernard, St. Charles, St. John the Baptist, St. Tammany, and Washington Parishes.
Projects providing screening services must document a mechanism to provide the necessary follow-up services if they will not provide the services themselves (e.g. written documentation outlining a referral system or partnerships in place). Projects must be specific to breast health and/or breast cancer. If a project is a combined breast and cervical cancer project, funding may only be requested for the breast cancer portion of the project.
The funding priority areas are listed below in no particular order based on the needs identified in the Community Profile:
-Reducing Barriers to Care
-Breast Cancer Education
