Grants starting at $10,000 to nonprofit organizations and government agencies for breast health and breast cancer-related programs and services. Funding may be used for programs that increase education, care, and services for underserved populations.
The funding priority areas are listed below in order of importance:
1. Reducing Barriers to Care
Evidence-based projects that reduce barriers to quality breast cancer care experienced by uninsured and underinsured individuals residing in Nevada. Priority will be given to individuals seeking care in:
- North Las Vegas and Las Vegas Wards 3 & 5
- Reno/Sparks Metropolitan Area (Washoe County)
- Carson City
The Affiliate seeks to fund projects that provide no cost or low-cost screening/diagnostic/treatment services, mobile mammography, diagnostic/treatment copay and deductible assistance, transportation and interpreter services.
2. Breast Cancer Education
Projects that provide evidence-based and culturally relevant breast cancer education in one-on-one and group settings. Projects must be designed to result in documented age-appropriate, breast cancer action (e.g., getting a screening mammogram, obtaining recommended follow-up after an abnormal mammogram). Based on findings from the Community Profile, these projects should target minority populations that reside in Las Vegas Wards 3 and 5.
Breast cancer education projects must include Komen’s breast self-awareness messages and provide evidence of linkage to local breast cancer services. Health fairs and mass media campaigns are not evidence-based interventions and will not be accepted.
Examples of successful projects include those that:
- Increase breast cancer action due to increased knowledge;
- Increase the number of “never screened” women getting breast cancer screening;
- Reduce the number of women “lost to follow‐up;”
- Reduce time from abnormal screening to diagnostic procedures;
- Reduce time from diagnostic resolution to treatment;
- Increase treatment compliance.
Funds may be requested for the following types of expenses, provided they are directly attributable to the project:
- Patient care
- Other direct project expenses
- Key Personnel / Salaries
- Indirect costs, not to exceed 10 percent of direct costs
