2019 Request for Proposals has been released!
Program Manager, Katreena Mitchell
Georgia CORE is very excited to announce the release of a new Request for Proposals (RFP) for the Georgia Breast Cancer License Tag (BCLT) Grant Program.
The purpose of the BCLT Grant Program is to expand breast cancer screening, including education, outreach and access, as well as treatment services for the medically indigent consistent with clinical standards-of-care.
Funds generated from the sale and renewal of the Breast Cancer License Tags ($300,000) are now available to non-profit organizations and public health agencies, to be distributed through an RFP process. Awards of up to $50,000 will be made for Treatment Service Projects and for Education, Prevention and Screening Services Projects.
Entities with outstanding funding or incomplete progress reports from the previous grant period are not eligible to apply for an additional grant during this funding cycle.
Complete applications must be submitted by 5:00 pm on August 26, 2019. Awards will be announced in October 2019.
Organizations providing education and/or treatment services in Chatham, Clayton, Dougherty, Douglas, Henry, Muscogee, Newton, Richmond and/or Spalding counties will receive greater consideration for funding as these counties have the highest incidence of late stage breast cancer in Georgia (based on sum of cases and rate in comparison to the State of Georgia).
