Through the National Vulnerable Populations Grants Program, we aim to reduce and eliminate disparities in breast cancer screening and mortality rates. The goal of the program is to develop more efficient processes for breast cancer screening, referral, diagnosis, treatment, follow-up and survivorship targeting vulnerable populations.

The purpose of this grant is to build the capacity of Komen Affiliates to identify, build and leverage appropriate partnerships to address the most complex breast health needs in their communities. Specifically, our headquarters is interested in supporting the development of new coalitions and/or helping to advance the work of existing coalitions that have been convened by Komen Affiliates.
As we seek to reduce breast cancer mortality rates and eliminate disparities, it is vital we develop well-defined coordinated strategies for working with community stakeholders. Working collaboratively allows our Affiliates to address barriers in the breast cancer continuum of care by pooling resources, sharing lessons learned, reducing duplicative work, and uniting partners around a set of common goals.
