Carolyn Adams Ticket For The Cure Grants

Patient Navigation and Community Outreach grants are available from the Illinois Department of Public Health through the “Carolyn Adams Ticket For The Cure” fund, which is supported by proceeds from a special Illinois Lottery scratch-off ticket where 100% of the net proceeds support breast cancer awareness, education and research in the state.

The deadline to apply for the grants is February 22. Adams, a former Illinois Lottery superintendent, died in 2007 of breast cancer.

Applicants may apply for up to $200,000 for the Patient Navigation grants and Community Outreach grants up to $40,000. The grants start March 1, 2024, and run through June 2025.

A virtual education session on applying for Patient Navigation Grants will be held Thursday, February 1, from 1 – 2 p.m. CST. Go here to attend.
