Grants ranging from $5,000 to $20,000 to California nonprofit organizations and governmental organizations to provide breast cancer and breast health services to medically underserved populations in Riverside and San Bernardino counties. Funding is intended to support programs and projects in the areas of breast cancer education, access to screening and diagnostic services, transportation and financial assistance, patient navigation, and support services.

The community grant program is designed to make systemic, lasting change in the community and enables nonprofit organizations to implement innovative, culturally appropriate, and comprehensive breast health programs in communities where they live, work, play, and worship.
