Grants starting at $10,000 to South Dakota nonprofits and government agencies, in all Counties except Union County, for projects in the areas of breast health and breast cancer education, increasing access to care, and support programs from screening through survivorship.

The funding priority areas are listed below in no particular order.
- Programs that use innovative, evidence-based approaches to break down cultural and/or language barriers and result in documented linkages to breast cancer screening, diagnostic, treatment and/or supportive services.
- Programs that provide evidence-based breast cancer education on the importance of early detection and the availability of financial assistance programs for uninsured women.
- Programs that foster collaboration between health care providers to preserve and strengthen continuity of breast cancer care and lead to an increased provider understanding of breast self-awareness messages supported by Susan G. Komen and knowledge of various referral processes to better navigate their patients though the continuum of care.
- Programs which reduce barriers to women seeking screening. Examples include bringing breast health education and/or free or reduced cost screening and diagnostic services to uninsured and under-insured women and programs which shorten the physical distance between women in remote/rural areas and the screening they need across the state.
- Programs which use innovative or evidence-based approaches to assist or navigate breast cancer patients at any point throughout the continuum of care, from education to screening through survivorship.

Priority will be given to applicants that demonstrate benefit to one or more of the following target communities:
- Oglala Lakota, Jackson, and Bennett Counties
- Lawrence and Pennington Counties
- Beadle County

Allowable Expenses:
-Salaries and fringe benefits for program staff
