Grants starting at $10,000 to nonprofit organizations, educational institutions, government agencies, and Indian tribes for breast health and breast cancer-related programs and services. Workshops will take place on November 1 and 2, with LOIs due by November 4. Priority will be given to proposals addressing one or more of the following identified community needs:

1. Increasing culturally sensitive outreach by providing small group information workshops to individuals of different cultural/ethnic backgrounds in cooperation with local organizations in North Las Vegas and Las Vegas Wards 3 and 5.

2. Increasing the number of health services and providers available in North Las Vegas and Las Vegas Wards 3 and 5 by funding health system partnerships to increase access to services.

3. Programs that improve access to direct care and the continuum of care through evidence-based programs that reduce late-stage diagnosis and mortality by reducing barriers to screening, diagnostic, and support services for underinsured and uninsured individuals living in Nye County, North Las Vegas, Las Vegas Wards 3 and 5, Washoe County, and Carson City.

4. Programs that address the medical and psychosocial needs of women living with metastatic breast cancer.

Please Note: If a program includes other health issues along with breast cancer, such as a breast and cervical cancer program, funding may only be requested for the breast cancer portion.
