Who receives grants?
Special Needs Grants are given to women who have a financial need associated with breast cancer and live in the California Central Coast area. Grants are used primarily to cover basic living expenses (food, rent, utilities, etc.) during treatment and recovery. In a few cases, specifically approved by BCAG, grants can be used to partially cover the costs of treatments. Applicants are encouraged to pursue other resources first including insurance, government programs and other nonprofit assistance.
How do you apply?
Complete the application form and mail to BCAG, P. O. Box 221582, Carmel, CA 93922. Please include all relevant information including letters from your physicians, medical records or billings. All information is considered carefully and confidentially by a committee of women who have experienced breast cancer themselves. After your application is reviewed, a BCAG representative may phone you for additional information.
What can you expect?
If your application is accepted you may receive a check, or money may be sent directly to your creditor’s billing office. The size of the grants depends on the BCAG funds available and the number of requests received.
