Community-Based Grants

Request for Application - 2016-2017 Susan G. Komen Missouri Community Grants  (Mid-Missouri)

Susan G. Komen Missouri grants support to non-profit organizations and governmental institutions in our service area for innovative, non-duplicative, evidence-based projects in the areas of breast cancer screening, breast health education and support programs not otherwise available to the medically underserved populations in our 38-county Missouri/Illinois service area.

Komen Missouri funding is limited and awarded through a competitive process. All grant applications are subjected to rigorous review by an independent panel of local professionals from varied backgrounds, including medicine, business, public health, and breast cancer survivors. This panel is responsible for making the final decisions regarding grant awards.

Grant awards are for one year (April 1-March 31). Organizations receiving Komen Missouri grant awards must re-apply each year.

Eligibility Criteria for Community-Based Grant Applications:

Applicants must meet the following eligibility criteria to be considered for funding:

  • All past and current Komen-funded grants or awards to applicant are up-to-date and in compliance with Komen requirements.
  • Applicant has tax-exempt status under the Internal Revenue Service code.
  • Applicants must be U.S. nonprofit organizations or governmental institutions located in or providing services in the Komen Missouri service area, which includes the following counties:
    • Missouri: Adair, Audrain, Boone, Callaway, Camden, Chariton, Cole, Cooper, Gasconade, Howard, Macon, Maries, Miller, Moniteau, Monroe, Montgomery, Morgan, Osage, Randolph
  • Project must be specific to breast health and/or breast cancer; e.g., for a women’s health project, funding may ONLY be requested for the breast cancer portion.
  • For Missouri applicants applying for screening funding, the organization must be a BCCCP provider through Show Me Healthy Women. [NOTE: This requirement will be waived for Mid-Missouri area grant applicants for the 2016-2017 grant year.] For Illinois applicants requesting screening funding, there must be an established relationship with a lead agency for Illinois BCCCP (IBCCCP).
  • If applicant, or any of its key employees, directors, officers or agents, is convicted of fraud or a crime involving any other financial or administrative impropriety, then applicant is not eligible to apply for a grant during this current cycle and will not be eligible to apply for a new grant until the later of 12 months after the conviction or until applicant can demonstrate that appropriate remedial measures have been taken to ensure that any criminal misconduct does not recur.
  • If awarded, the organization must possess adequate insurance. Higher risk programs (providing screening/treatment) must possess: (i) commercial general liability insurance with combined limits of not less than $1,000,000 per occurrence and $2,000,000 in the aggregate for bodily injury, including death, and property damage; and (ii) excess/umbrella insurance, excess to the insurance set forth in (i) above, with a limit of not less than $5,000,000. Lesser amounts may be acceptable for some organizations.
