Susan G. Komen® South Florida is proud to announce the release of its RFA (Request for Application) for services to be provided fiscal year 04/01/2017 to 03/31/2018. Two separate application releases are being issued – one in the area of Patient Care, and the other in the area of Breast Health Navigation/Education. Applications for breast cancer and breast health programs from nonprofit organizations, governmental agencies and educational institutions in Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie counties are eligible for grant funding.

The promise of Komen South Florida is to save lives and end breast cancer forever by empowering people, ensuring quality care for all and energizing science to find the cures. The organization runs one of the most innovative, responsive grant programs in breast cancer today. Komen South Florida is proud to have funded over $ 500,000 to local community programs in 2016-2017 that support breast cancer screening and treatment programs, as well as education and outreach for the medically underserved in Palm Beach, Martin and St. Lucie counties.
