Grants starting at $10,000 to Illinois and Missouri nonprofit organizations and government agencies to provide breast cancer outreach, screening, and support services to underserved populations within the funding source’s service area, which includes the following Counties:
-Missouri: Adair, Audrain, Boone, Callaway, Camden, Chariton, Cole, Cooper, Franklin, Gasconade, Howard, Jefferson, Lincoln, Macon, Madison, Maries, Miller, Moniteau, Monroe, Montgomery, Morgan, Osage, Perry, Randolph, St. Charles, St. Francois, Ste. Genevieve, St. Louis City, St. Louis County, Warren, and Washington Counties.
-Illinois: Bond, Calhoun, Clinton, Jersey, Madison, Monroe, and St. Clair Counties.
The funding priority areas are listed below in no order or importance.
-Support evidence-based programs that decrease or remove barriers to breast cancer screening, diagnosis and treatment. Example programs include mobile mammography, after-hours appointments, expanded clinic hours, and transportation assistance. Priority will be given to applicants that demonstrate benefit to one or more of the following communities: Audrain County, Camden County, Chariton County, Morgan County, Perry County, St. Louis City, St. Louis County and St. Charles County in Missouri, and St. Clair County, Illinois.
-Support evidence-based patient navigation and/or care coordination programs that improve navigation into and through the breast cancer continuum of care to reduce the late-stage diagnosis rate among Black/African-American women in St. Louis City/County in Missouri, and St. Clair County, Illinois.
-Support programs that provide free or low-cost breast cancer treatment services for women residing in Audrain Camden, Chariton, and Morgan Counties in Missouri
The State of Missouri did not expand the Medicaid program that would have brought coverage for breast health services to many of the low-income women in the State. Many of these women are now left to rely upon the State’s safety net Breast and Cervical Cancer Services (Show Me Healthy Women) program, which due to funding constraints is only able to serve 16 percent of eligible. women. For this reason, Komen Missouri will accept applications from programs that will provide free or low-cost breast cancer screening and diagnostic services for women that would otherwise be eligible for Shoe Me Healthy Women.
These women must be:
-Low-income (at or below 200 percent of the Federal Poverty Income Guideline)
-Uninsured or underinsured
-Aged 40-64 years
-Residing in the Affiliate service area
-Salaries should only be requested for patient service oriented positions related to the grant project, not administrative roles or other grant projects.
-Fringe benefits should only be included for personnel members that work 50% of their work commitment on an annual basis on the Komen-funded grant program.
-Clinical services or patient care costs
-Reasonable travel costs related to the execution of the program
-Other direct program expenses
-Equipment, not to exceed $5,000 total, essential to the breast health-related project to be conducted.
$10,000 - $150,000
The award period is April 1, 2017 through March 31, 2018.
