Annual Community Grants
The Request for Application (RFA) is built around the Affiliate’s Statement of Need and Affiliate Priorities which conveys the guidelines for the types of programs the Komen Affiliate is willing to fund. The Statement of Need, Priorities and RFA are based on findings from the Affiliate's Community Profile. The Statement of Need is included as part of the RFA. The Community Profile for the Northeastern New York Affiliate can be found at: http://www.komenneny.org/understanding-breast-cancer/local-resources/our-community-need.html
The RFA also sets the rules for applying for Komen Affiliate grants, including deliverables under the grant contract, evaluation criteria, grants structure and budget and other qualifying guidelines that must be met before the proposal is sent to review.
NOTE: The new RFA for 2017-18 Annual Community Grants is now available. As of 2012, all new grant applications will be submitted online; grant awards, progress reports, final reports and any grant changes will also be done electronically.
