Current Grant Recipients

Komen Lubbock Area’s largest expense each year is grant funding for services provided to people living on the South Plains. Our independent Grant Review Panel of breast cancer experts, community members, and survivors evaluates grants to determine which will have the greatest impact in serving our community, based on the priorities set forth in the Community profile.

The following projects have been selected for the grant cycle of April 1, 2016 – March 31, 2017. We are fortunate to have outstanding community partners working with us toward our mission.
