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.

Patient Navigation Collaboration
Pilot Program (PNC)

Our community needs assessment has identified areas, where significant health disparities continue to impact certain communities and our Patient Navigation White Paper, demonstrates how a more focused approach to patient navigation is needed to reduce the number of late-stage diagnoses and high breast cancer mortality rates, particularly among African-American and Latino women. To address this, Komen Greater NYC introduced a new funding opportunity for organizations that have current or proposed patient navigation programs within the four boroughs of New York City, Nassau, Suffolk, Westchester, and Rockland Counties. The purpose of this pilot program is to promote cross functional collaboration between organizations that each provide lay and/or nurse navigation services. Integrating the distinct roles of lay and nurse navigators will enhance delivery of care throughout each phase of the breast cancer continuum.

The funding period is 12 months and runs from November 1st through October 31st. Organizations applying for the PNC grant may request up to $100,000 over this one-year period. Organizations that have previously received Komen Greater NYC funding are welcome to apply for additional funding.
