Thank you for your interest in the Susan G. Komen® Central Texas grant program. This year’s grant application period ended in December 2014. Check back in Fall 2015 for details on applying next year or email our us at grants@komenecentx.wpengine.com.

To get a better understanding of how our grant process works, please read on. Each year, all applications undergo a three-phase review process.

  • First, eligible local nonprofit healthcare organizations serving Bell, Bosque, Coryell, Falls, McLennan, and Milamcountie counties apply to receive Komen Central Texas community grant funding for evidence-based breast cancer programs. These programs must meet a need and funding priority identified in Komen Central Texas’ community needs assessment. To see the types of services Komen Central Texas funding makes possible, learn more about our continuum of care.
  • Second, community grant applicants are thoroughly reviewed by an anonymous and independent community-based grant review panel. The applicants are selected and ranked based on the ability to fill service gaps identified by Komen Central Texas’ community needs assessment and ability to deliver services covering the continuum of care. To apply for a position on the grant review panel email us at grants@komenecentx.wpengine.com.
  • Lastly, the Komen Central Texas Board of Directors approves the financial investment to its 6-county service areabased on available funds.

To be eligible to apply for a grant:

  • your organization must be a federally tax-exempt entity – nonprofit organization, government agency, educationalinstitution or Indian tribe.
  • The organization must also serve our six county service area (Bell, Bosque, Coryell, Falls, McLennan, and Milamcounties).
  • Be a program specific to breast health and/or breast cancer services
