Grants ranging from $10,000 to $60,000 to Orange County, California nonprofit organizations and government agencies for breast cancer support, education, and screening services. Funding is intended to improve patient navigation and reduce obstacles to care, and for educational programs related to breast cancer. The goal of the program is to reduce breast cancer mortality by addressing disparities, increasing access to quality and timely care, and/or improving outcomes through patient navigation.

The funding priority areas are listed below in no particular order:

  • Patient Navigation: Projects that provide evidence-based patient navigation for anyone utilizing breast health services along the continuum of care paying particular attention to the priority populations listed in the current Community Profile: African American/Black women; Asian and Pacific Islander women; Hispanic/Latina women; women 65 years or older that reside in Orange County. Patient navigation must follow the individual from abnormal screening to diagnostic resolution and through treatment, if necessary. For additional information about patient navigation, see:
  • Reducing Barriers to Care: Evidence-based projects that reduce barriers to quality breast cancer care experienced by uninsured and underinsured individuals residing in Orange County. Underinsured is defined as having some insurance coverage but not enough, or when one is insured yet unable to afford the out-of-pocket responsibilities not covered by his or her insurer. Komen seeks to fund projects that provide no cost or low-cost screening/diagnostic/treatment services, mobile mammography, diagnostic/treatment copay and deductible assistance, transportation, interpreter services, childcare/eldercare, financial assistance for daily living expenses or medical treatment assistance for those receiving breast cancer treatment.
  • 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).  Breast cancer education projects should include Komen’s breast self-awareness messages.  Projects must provide evidence of linkage to local breast cancer services and include follow up with participants.

For a list of allowable costs, see:

All projects must have at least one Specific Measurable Attainable Realistic Time-bound (SMART) objective that will be accomplished with Komen funding and can be evaluated including an estimated timeline and the anticipated number of individuals to be served. Guidance on crafting SMART objectives is located here:
