Funding Priorities

2017-2018 Funding Priorities


  • Priority 1 – Programs that are designed to provide increased awareness of free and reduced-cost services, particularly among underserved, uninsured and minority women in both rural and urban communities.
  • Priority 2 – Programs whose goals and methodologies are designed to reach underserved and uninsured women in both rural and urban communities.
  • Priority 3 – Programs that include services to help patients navigate through the continuum of care to ensure that they are screened and that those with positive screening findings receive the appropriate follow-up diagnostic and treatment services, particularly in rural areas where services are not available or where there are barriers to accessing available services.
  • Priority 4 – Programs designed to provide access to breast health education, screening, diagnostic and treatment services to underserved and uninsured women in Seneca County, as well as to African American and other minority women who reside in the City of Syracuse (Onondaga County) or in the City of Rochester (Monroe County).

Every several years, the Affiliate revises its Community Profile Report to reflect changes in the community, allowing the Affiliate to identify any gaps in the health system and to work toward filling them.  The Community Profile Report includes findings based on interviews with and surveys of those living in target areas. The completed Community Profile is an assessment of the state of breast health in Central New York and a plan of action to improve it.
