The Wisconsin Partnership Program will provide up to $2 million to strengthen and expand the capacity of community-based organizations and community models of care to serve women and families more effectively, thereby improving health outcomes. Each award will be for a maximum of $150,000 for up to two years.

  1. Supporting Black women’s health before a possible pregnancy
  2. Expanding community-based models of care to be responsive to the desires/needs of pregnant Black women
  3. Strengthening access to post-partum maternal care and infant needs
  4. Prioritizing the needs of the infant and the family adults together
