How to Apply for Funding
2020 GRANT APPLICATION DEADLINE: DECEMBER 11, 2019 - 11:59 PM CST
About the Komen Minnesota Community Grants Program
Susan G. Komen Minnesota is committed to ensuring that all individuals have access to breast cancer education, outreach, screening, and treatment support. Especially important in our Community Grants Program is eliminating the barriers that - far too often and in far too many communities - prevent women from gaining access to screening, which in turn results in late-stage breast cancer diagnoses, fewer treatment options and lower survival rates.
To address these needs, Komen Minnesota administers a robust community grants program which in 2019 totaled over $700,000.00 distributed to 12 organizations. Our rigorous grantee selection process assures funded programs uphold the integrity of the Komen name and meet the needs of diverse communities throughout the state of Minnesota.
Applying for Funding
All applications must be completed and submitted online via the new Komen Grants Portal at komen.smartsimple.com. The Komen Grants Portal is a complete online grant management system that will allow grant applicants to complete their applications and grantees to submit their progress and final reports online.
Please continue to visit this website throughout the application period for updated information about the grant process, as well as other resources.
Completed applications for the 2020 grant cycle are due by 11:59 PM CST on Wednesday, December 11, 2019. We encourage those interested in applying to start early and leave plenty of time to complete the process. Final funding announcements will be made at the end of March 2020.

Other Grant Writing Tools & Resources
The Program Sustainability Assessment Tool (PSAT), developed by the Center for Public Health Systems Science at Washington University in St. Louis, allows you to assess a program on several dimensions that increase the likelihood of later sustainability. The tool is quick, user-friendly, and produces a score that groups can use to evaluate their progress over time.
The GW Cancer Center is pleased to announce the release of Implementing the Commission on Cancer Standard 3.1: Patient Navigation Process: A Road Map for Comprehensive Cancer Control Professionals and Cancer Program Administrators. This CDC-funded resource was developed in response to technical assistance requests by comprehensive cancer control stakeholders to help build capacity to meet the Commission on Cancer (CoC) standard for developing a patient navigation process.
