The South Dakota funding priorities for the 2017-2018 Community Grants Cycle are::

  • Programs that use innovative, evidence-based approaches to break down cultural and/or language barriers and result in documented linkages to breast cancer screening, diagnostic, treatment and/or supportive services.
  • Programs that provide evidence-based breast cancer education on the importance of early detection and the availability of financial assistance programs for uninsured women.
  • Programs that foster collaboration between health care providers to preserve and strengthen continuity of breast cancer care and lead to an increased provider understanding of breast self-awareness messages supported by Susan G. Komen and knowledge of various referral processes to better navigate their patients though the continuum of care.
  • Programs which reduce barriers to women seeking screening. Examples include bringing breast health education and/or free or reduced cost screening and diagnostic services to uninsured and under-insured women and programs which shorten the physical distance between women in remote/rural areas and the screening they need across the state.
  • Programs which use innovative or evidence-based approaches to assist or navigate breast cancer patients at any point throughout the continuum of care, from education to screening through survivorship.
