Avon Foundation For Women
The Foundationís Breast Cancer Safety Net Program is accepting letters of intent from regional and community hospitals working to provide medically underserved women with access to post-screening diagnostics and care. Grants support institutions and organizations that care for uninsured, at-risk, low income, and minority patients in their communities. Eligible applicants include public hospitals, safety-net hospitals, community clinics, and cancer centers with a history of effectively navigating patients through the health care system and ensuring consistent, high-quality care. The 2011 initiative emphasizes support of patient navigation programs or partial support for equipment for safety-net hospitals to enhance breast cancer care for the medically underserved. Safety net applicants may request up to $125,000 per year for up to two years. All applicants are required to submit a letter of intent. The deadline for letters of intent is geographically based. Letters of intent are due by March 15 for San Francisco and Los Angeles-Santa Barbara; July 15 for New York City and Charlotte, NC; and September 15 for Houston and all other cities/regions in the United States.
