Grants of up to $10,000 to Michigan nonprofit organizations, government agencies, tribes, and educational institutions for breast cancer outreach, programming, and capacity building initiatives. Applicants are advised to contact program staff prior to applying.

Drawing from the 2015 Community Profile, Komen Michigan has identified the following small grant funding priorities:

1) Pilot or capacity building evidence-based programs with a focus on:

-Reaching populations with low screening rates, specifically those who are rarely or have never been screened. Programs should have an emphasis on the uninsured, newly insured, and medically underserved by developing creative approaches to community-based/lay navigation.

-Exploring new approaches to reach low income African American, Hispanic/Latina, and rural communities and provide opportunities to creatively meet identified educational or outreach needs.

-Addressing disparities in mortality by developing innovative approaches to clinical patient navigation/case management programs which provide follow-up and support through diagnosis and treatment.

-Creating innovative and culturally competent training and/or education for health care providers.

-Developing evaluation plans or measures to enhance your organization’s ability to quantify outcomes.

-Piloting new programs to meet identified breast health needs from Komen Michigan’s Community

-Profile with the intent to expand the program into a large grant request the following year.

2) Support for local scientific or educational conferences, symposia, and meetings. Preference given to those that enhance the interaction between the healthcare, advocate, survivor, and scientific communities with a focus on engaging populations in-need as described previously.

Funds may be used for the following types of expenses provided they are directly attributable to the program, including consultant fees, meeting costs, supplies, reasonable travel costs related to the execution of the program, and other direct program expenses.

-Educational Programs: Up to $5,000, usually $2,000
-Pilot Health Programs: Up to $10,000

To be eligible to apply for a Komen Michigan Small Grant your organization must be:

-A federally tax-exempt entity; a nonprofit organization, government agency, educational institution or Indian Tribe.

-Located in and providing services in one or more of the Komen Michigan 24 counties.

The final date for submission for funding requests is January 1, 2017 (noon).

Early submission is encouraged.

Allocations are made as programs are approved and funded, so funding may not be available. Interested applicants should contact Mission Director Megan Smith Jovanovic prior to submission and should submit their proposal at least 60 days before the program date, unless otherwise agreed.
