The Wisconsin Partnership Program is currently seeking applicants for the 2018 Community Impact Grants program. The overarching goal of the Community Impact Grants program is to advance health equity in Wisconsin communities through support for large-scale, evidence-informed, community-academic partnership initiatives that address the social determinants of health.

These partnerships require substantial and authentic community involvement to achieve sustained policy, systems and environmental change, and must be supported by robust evaluation. Each award is for a maximum of $1 million over a period of up to five years. The request for partnerships is available now.

Through its community grant programs, the Wisconsin Partnership Program at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health supports community-driven work to advance health equity and is committed to supporting initiatives that address inequities and their root causes, and that are developed and implemented in authentic partnership with those who are most affected by them.

The Wisconsin Partnership Program was established in 2004 with the vision to make Wisconsin a healthier state for all, through investments in research, education and community partnerships.
