Capacity-Building Breast Health
Program Grant

Nonprofits in the Komen Greater NYC service area can apply for up to $5,000 for a Small Pilot or Capacity-Building Breast Health Program Grant. These grants are for organizations interested in beginning a new program or test new ideas that will increase the innovative capacity and effectiveness of breast health programs that serve low income and uninsured patients. Capacity Building is enhancing an organization's ability to provide services by redesigning processes, implementing new practices, or developing collaborations or partnerships.

There is no template for the Capacity-Building Breast Health Program Grant application. Submitted project proposal should be no longer than 10 pages and must include: Organization Summary, Project Priorities and Abstract, Project Narrative, Project Target Demographics, Project Work plan, Budget (Eg. Key Personnel/Salaries, Consultants, Meeting Cost, Supplies, Travel, etc.).

Komen Greater NYC considers Capacity-Building Breast Health applications on a case-by-case basis, please email the Manager of Grants and Public Policy Mandy Lin at for more information.

The funding period is 12 months and the grant year is dependent on when the organization applies. A final report is due a month after the grant has ended.
