Smart Budget Tool
The Smart Budget Tool was created to help Community Breast Health applicants determine the primary funding category and focus of their proposed program, which must be identified on all submitted applications. This tool can be especially helpful for programs that provide more than one type of service, and can be used as a preparatory exercise for the actual application budget. This is not meant to replace the budget form provided in the RFA; this is a tool for applicants, to aid in determining the program funding focus (Education and Outreach; Screening Coordination; or Support and Treatment).
