July 3, 2014


HWPP is pleased to release a new funding opportunity, that has been guided by the 2014-2018 Five Year Plan.

The funding will support Wisconsin-based, multi-sector, community/MCW academic coalitions or networks to work together to translate public health data and evidence into actions to pursue grassroots policy, envionmental or systems change (changing the regulations, rules, priorities, protocols or practices within and across organizations and communities; changing the physical or material components of the community environment) that address the key determinants that most strongly influence health.

Successful projects will demonstrate an appropriate budget and timeframe for their proposed scope of work. Approximately $1M - $1.5M is available to support 4-6 projects.
