Breast Cancer License Tag
Request for Proposals for the Georgia Breast Cancer License Tag Grant Program
Georgia CORE - the Center for Oncology Research and Education is very excited to announce the release of a new Request for Proposals (RFP) for the Georgia Breast Cancer License Tag Grant Program!
The purpose of the Georgia Breast Cancer License Tag Grant program is to expand breast cancer education, screening, access, and outreach as well as treatment services to people in the state of Georgia who are medically underserved.
Funds generated from the sale and renewal of the Breast Cancer License Tags ($300,000) are now available to non-profit organizations and publichealth agencies, to be distributed through an RFP process. Awards of up to $100,000 will be made for Treatment Service Projects and awards of up to $50,000 will be made for Education and Preventive Services Projects.
Entities with outstanding funding or incomplete progress reports from the previous grant period are not eligible to apply for an additional grant during this funding cycle.
Complete applications must be submitted by 5:00 pm on May 3, 2017. Awards will be announced in June 2017.
Organizations providing education and/or treatment services in Chatham, Dougherty, Franklin, Muscogee, Richmond and Wilkes counties will receive greater consideration for funding as these counties have the highest incidence of late stage breast cancer in Georgia (per GCCR data as of November 2015).

Did you know that $22 of the fee for every breast cancer license tag sold or renewed goes to help women in need?
Yes, for each breast cancer license tag purchase or renewal from the Georgia Department of Revenue, $22 of your fee supports grants for organizations that provide screenings, education and treatment for Georgians without insurance that are also below the poverty level.
Georgia CORE administers the Georgia Access to Care, Treatment, and Services (ACTS) Breast Cancer Grant Program on behalf of the Georgia State Office of Rural Health. Since 2013, nearly $2.9 million has been awarded to 26 community organizations from the sale and renewal of breast cancer license tags. Located across the state, these organizations use the funds to expand breast cancer education, screening, access, outreach and treatment to underinsured and underserved women in Georgia.
The more breast cancer license tags sold and renewed in Georgia, the more services and education provided to those Georgians that may not otherwise have that access. Please find out how you can purchase a breast cancer license tag by visiting your county tag office. To find the location of your tag office, please visit the Georgia Department of Revenue web site.
