Grants starting at $10,000 to Nevada 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:

Reducing Barriers to Care

Evidence-based projects that reduce barriers to quality breast cancer care experienced by uninsured and underinsured individuals residing in Nevada 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. Priority will be given to projects providing services in:

  • Carson City
  • Clark County (Las Vegas Wards 3 & 5 and the City of North Las Vegas)
  • Nye County
  • Washoe County

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). Based on findings from the Community Profile, these projects should target minority populations, specifically our non-English speaking Hispanic populations, African-American and Asian populations that reside in North Las Vegas and in Las Vegas Wards 3 & 5.

Breast cancer education projects should include Komen’s breast self-awareness messages, if appropriate, based on the need, audience, and purpose of the educational project. Projects must provide evidence of linkage to local breast cancer services and include follow up with participants.
