Avon Foundation Invites Applications for Supporting the Safety Net Breast Cancer Care Program
Deadline: May 1, 2007

The Avon Foundation (<a href=""></a>) Breast Cancer Crusade regional "Supporting the Safety Net" program supports public, community, and safety net hospitals and healthcare systems that provide breast care to low-income, at-risk, uninsured, and underinsured individuals. Through this initiative, the foundation supports programs that enable medically underserved women to get from screening to diagnostics and care. Priority is given to the eight cities where Avon Walks for Breast Cancer are held.

For the May 1, 2007, deadline, applicants must be located in and serve vulnerable populations in regions surrounding or near the following metropolitan regions: Charlotte, Los Angeles, New York City, and all other cites, which will compete in a national pool of applications. (Please note: Boston, Chicago, Denver, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C., were invited to apply for an earlier deadline.)

The objective of the program is to support institutions and organizations that have traditionally cared for uninsured, at-risk, low-income, and minority patients. Such institutions include public hospitals, safety-net hospitals, community clinics, and cancer centers with a history of effectively providing care to underserved populations and navigating patients through the healthcare system, thus ensuring consistent, high quality, and complete care. The emphasis will be on capital improvements and capacity building (equipment, personnel, and support for enabling services) to expand and upgrade clinical breast cancer diagnostic and treatment services.

Grant amounts will range from $100,000 to $250,000 each.
