Working toward one goal

Increasing access and utilization of quality care through our community partners to reduce late-stage breast cancer diagnosis and breast cancer mortality.

Determining Grant Eligibility

When considering applying for a Komen Greater NYC grant, you must first determine whether your organization is eligible. The following eligibility requirements must be met at the time of application submission for all three grant programs we fund: Community Breast Health (CBH) grants, Patient Navigation Collaboration (PNC) pilot grants, and Capacity-Building Breast Health grants.

Eligibility Requirements
  • Individuals are not eligible to apply.
  • Applications will only be accepted from governmental organizations under Section 170(c)(1) or nonprofit organizations under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) code. Applicants must prove tax‐exempt status by providing a letter of determination from the IRS.
  • Applicant organizations must provide services to residents of one or more of the following counties:
    • Bronx
    • Brooklyn
    • Manhattan (*not eligible for Patient Navigation Collaboration Pilot grant)
    • Queens
    • Richmond
    • Nassau
    • Suffolk
    • Westchester
    • Rockland
  • Proposed project must be specific to breast health and/or breast cancer and addresses the priorities identified in Komen Greater NYC's Community Profile. If the project includes other health issues along with breast cancer, such as a breast and cervical cancer project, funding may only be requested for the breast cancer portion.
  • All past and current Komen-funded projects must be in compliance with Komen requirements.
  • 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 in the 12 months prior to the submission deadline for the application, then applicant is not eligible to apply for a grant until 12 months after the conviction. After such 12-month period, applicant must demonstrate in its application that appropriate remedial measures have been taken to ensure that any criminal misconduct will not recur.

Once eligibility has been determined, an organization must read and respond to the Letter of Intent and Request for Applications in order to apply for a grant.
