Komen New England is pleased to offer Community Grants to organizations in New England that are working to meet the most critical breast health needs throughout our service area. Our funding priorities for our 2019-2020 grant cycle are: Patient Navigation, Reducing Barriers to Care, and Education that Leads to Action.

“Our community grants program will help us reach the bold goal announced by Susan G.  Komen to reduce the current number of breast cancer deaths in the U.S.  by 50 percent by 2026,” said Lori van Dam, Komen New England CEO. “Up to one-third of women who are currently dying could be saved without any new medical breakthroughs. The programs we fund will help overcome barriers to screening and treatment, so all our neighbors have the same opportunities to access the care they need.”
