Statement of Need

The Community Profile is a needs assessment document that provides an overview of Komen’s grant-making priorities and the breast health needs in our service area. So as to not duplicate programs already in place and focus efforts on addressing unmet needs for breast health in the community, please familiarize yourself with this document before developing your applications.
