Statement of need for the 2012-2013 Grant Funding cycle:
The Community Profile is a community needs assessment that provides the basis for Affiliate grant-making and activities. The Community Profile is updated every two years to stay current and uses a variety of sources to determine the breast health needs in our Service Area. By taking a comprehensive, evidenced-based look at what is happening in our Service Area, we can ensure that the funds we raise are going towards programs that meet the needs of our community.
