How to Apply for Funding

The Request for Application (RFA) is built around the Affiliate’s Statement of Need which conveys the guidelines for the types of programs Komen Florida Suncoast is interested in funding. The Statement of Need and RFA are both based on findings from the Community Profile. The Statement of Need is included as part of the RFA.

The RFA also sets the rules for applying for Komen Affiliate grants, including deliverables under the grant contract, evaluation criteria, grants structure and budget and other qualifying guidelines that must be met before the proposal is sent to review.

Submission Requirements

All applications must be submitted online through the Komen Grants e-Management System (GeMS): Training on use of the GeMS system will occur at the grant workshop.

Applications must be received on or before January 31, 2017 at 5:00 p.m. No late submissions will be accepted.

The grant application process is competitive. Whether or not an organization has received a grant in the past, funding in subsequent years is never guaranteed and depends upon the quality of this application, the quality of the applicant pool, and the funds available for distribution.
