Phone: 212.244.5368
The Avon Breast Health Outreach Program provides financial support in the form of grants to community-based programs that conduct outreach, provide breast cancer education and link medically underserved women to clinical screening services. 

Avon BHOP will seek to support programs that:
  • Recruit women for both first-time and annual screenings
  • Develop partnerships between community-based outreach providers and local medical providers
  • Work with health care providers to ensure proper clinical follow-up of abnormal screening results
  • Educate older women about Medicare coverage of annual screening mammograms, and assist them in obtaining the service from providers who accept Medicare
To be eligible for funding, applicants must be based in the U.S., Guam, Puerto Rico, or the U.S. Virgin Islands and be private, non-government, non-profit organizations (with Federal non-profit status). 

Both community-based organizations and medical service provider organizations (community clinics, hospitals, etc.) with mammography screening capacity are welcome to apply. 

Any publicly-funded government agency wishing to apply may do so only by partnering with a private, non-profit organization or educational institution that will assume fiscal responsibility for and collaborate fully with the proposed program. 

Native American Tribes are encouraged to apply to the Avon BHOP and may do so through or in partnership with Native American non-profit organizations that will assume fiscal responsibility for and commit to the reporting and screening requirements of Avon BHOP grants.
