Wisconsin Partnership Program announces $1.5 million in new maternal and child health awards

From the Wisconsin Partnership Program:

The Wisconsin Partnership Program (WPP) at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health is pleased to announce 10 new projects selected for funding through its Maternal and Child Health grant program. Congratulations to this year’s grant recipients!

The awards of up to $150,000 each over two years provide support for community organizations to expand capacity and strengthen their strategies and approaches for improving maternal and child health outcomes.

This year’s awards support innovative community-led solutions to address the health needs of diverse populations across Wisconsin. The projects support rural, urban, immigrant, and Native mothers through targeted home visiting programs, community health worker and doula services, and expanded partnerships with health care delivery professionals and clinics based in communities.
