The 2018 Community Grant Request for Applications is now available for your review and consideration.  These grants are designed to support evidence-based programming in the areas of reducing barriers to care, patient navigation, and breast cancer education.  Applicants from Nebraska or South Dakota may submit one application, in the amount of $5000 to $100,000, for one of these program areas.  Applications will be accepted for up to $100,000 in the area of reducing barriers to care, up to $100,000 for patient navigation, and up to $85,000 for breast cancer education.  Priority will be given to applicants who apply to serve a target community as identified in their state’s community profile.  The full RFA with instructions on how to apply is available at:

Important note:  All applicants must be registered in our online grant management system, known as GeMS.  South Dakota-based grant applicants must reapply in the GeMs system even if the organization has previously submitted an application.   Please register here.  Under Affiliate State, you must choose Nebraska; under Affiliate, choose Great Plains, and under Organization, please select ‘Other’. You will then be prompted to enter your organization information.
