Funding Priorities
The Susan G. Komen® Twin Tiers Region is pleased to announce one-year grants for projects that reduce breast cancer mortality in our nine-county service region (Broome, Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben, Tioga and Tompkins counties in New York, and Bradford, Potter and Tioga counties in Pennsylvania). Applications are due December 8, 2016 for projects taking place between April 1, 2017 and March 31, 2018.

We are particularly interested in projects focusing on those whose access to screening and treatment is compromised by financial hardship, geographical challenges or ignorance of available resources. However, we welcome and encourage all relevant applications by eligible organizations in the Twin Tiers Region.

Komen Twin Tiers has identified the following Funding Priorities for the 2017-2018 Funding Cycle:

  • Support survivorship programming, particularly in Bradford, PA and Tompkins & Tioga Counties, NY
  • Reduce barriers to treatment and care including transportation, financial /insurance gaps, particularly in Tioga, Chemung, Schuyler, Steuben Counties NY
  • Provide screening and mammography in Bradford, Potter & Tioga Counties PA
  • Provide breast health education and continuum of care services, particularly in Tioga and Broome, NY and Bradford, PA

Programs/Projects addressing other areas of need will also be considered.

Please note that requests for science research funding should be directed to the Susan G. Komen® Award and Research Grant Program. Information on research funding is available at
