How to Apply for Funding


The 2016-2017 Request for Application (RFA) will be available for download on October 21, 2015.

Submission Requirements

All applications must be submitted online through the Komen Grants e-Management System (GeMS): Training on use of the GeMS system will occur at the grant workshop referenced below.

Applications must be received on or before Thursday, December 17th 2015. No late submissions will be accepted.

The grant application process is competitive. Whether or not an organization has received a grant in the past, funding in subsequent years is never guaranteed and depends upon the quality of this application, the quality of the applicant pool, and the funds available for distribution.
