Grants starting at $2,500 to North Carolina and South Carolina nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, and government agencies for breast cancer education, screening, treatment, and support services. Eligible organizations are located in and serving Anson, Cabarrus, Cleveland, Gaston, Iredell, Lincoln, Mecklenburg, Montgomery, Richmond, Rowan, Stanly, and Union Counties in North Carolina; and York County in South Carolina.
1) Screening and Diagnostic Services:
-Identify and reach uninsured or underinsured populations who are currently without a primary care provider (PCP), to help them establish a PCP and enter and progress through the breast cancer/breast health continuum of care. Priority will be given to programs serving individuals that reside in Cabarrus and Mecklenburg Counties.
-Identify and reach populations with low screening rates and provide access to free/low- cost clinical screening services. Priority will be given to programs that provide services (e.g. free or low-cost screening) to rarely or never screened individuals identified as uninsured, underinsured, homeless, and programs that reach Black/African American and/or Hispanic/Latino in Cabarrus and/or Mecklenburg Counties.
2) Education and Outreach:
-Implement innovative and culturally competent outreach and education programs utilizing evidence-based best practices to reach underserved individuals who do not have an adequate understanding of breast cancer nor are aware of breast health services available to them. These programs should address fears and myths, emphasize the importance of preventive care, educate on screening messages consistent with Komen’s education message and make individuals aware of available resources. Priority will be given to programs that reach Black/African American and Hispanic/Latino populations in Cabarrus and Mecklenburg Counties.
3) Transportation and Treatment Support:
-Identify and provide transportation assistance to uninsured or underinsured populations who have barriers in accessing breast cancer services (i.e., screening, diagnostic and treatment) due to a lack of transportation. Priority will be given to programs that provide transportation services to individuals that reside in Cabarrus and Mecklenburg Counties.
-Identify and provide treatment support services to breast cancer survivors who have a financial barrier to obtaining treatment support programs throughout the Affiliate’s 13- county service area. Treatment support programs include, but are not limited to, pain and symptom management (e.g. lymphedema), psychological impacts of breast cancer survivorship, end-of-life issues, quality of life, rehabilitation, etc.
