The North Jersey Affiliate’s Grant Program is dedicated to providing equal access to quality breast health care for all women. This program extends throughout nine counties: Bergen, Essex, Hudson, Morris, Passaic, Somerset, Sussex, Union, and Warren.
Seventy-five percent of net funds raised by the Affiliate remains in the Northern New Jersey region to support community-based breast health programs focusing on the medically underserved and uninsured populations. Since its inception in 1997, the North Jersey Affiliate has awarded over $11 million in grants to more than fifty different organizations.
The remaining twenty-five percent is contributed to the Susan G. Komen for the CureŽ Research Grants Program. To date, the Affiliate has contributed approximately $5.1 million to this Program.
In 2008, the North Jersey Affiliate began the bi-annual comprehensive Community Needs Profile to ensure grant funds are distributed to community-based programs providing the greatest impact. This profile is now used to guide the local grant application and review process consistent with the Affiliate's mission and standards. The completed Community Profile Report 2009, identified the following priorities:
|Increase collaboration with other cancer organizations, institutions, businesses, and individuals within the target communities.|
|Increase outreach to African American women in Essex, Hudson, and Passaic counties through a faith-based approach.|
|Reduce the number of late diagnoses in Sussex County women with an emphasis on women under 65.|
Additional information regarding the Community Profile Report 2009 is available.
