Komen Hawaii awards community grants to organizations that provide breast cancer projects that address specific funding priorities which were selected based on data from the 2015-2018 Komen Hawaii Community Profile.
Although Komen Hawaii is not accepting applications for Community Grants this year, we are accepting applications for Small Grants, and we are investing funds into the Treatment Assistance Program that supports patients who qualify from the state of Hawaii.
