The Wisconsin Partnership Program at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health has released its 2022 Community Impact Grants Program Request for Partnerships. Through the Community Impact Grant Program, the Wisconsin Partnership Program advances health equity in Wisconsin by supporting community-academic partnership initiatives that address the social determinants of health and root causes of health inequities and are informed and implemented by communities most affected by them.
The Wisconsin Partnership Program’s Oversight and Advisory Committee will allocate up to $3 million in Community Impact Grant awards. Each award is for a maximum of $500,000 over a period of three years. Awardees from this funding cycle are eligible to apply for one three-year renewal for an additional $500,000 at the end of their initial award, for a total award of up to $1 million over six years. Renewals are competitive, and as part of the renewal application, awardees must demonstrate success in achieving progress on the primary activities outlined in the original proposal. Letters of intent are due May 27, 2022.
