WisBusiness: Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin Endowment is taking applications for $8.5 million in new funding for health equity projects

The Medical College of Wisconsin’s Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin Endowment is taking applications for $8.5 million in new funding going to health equity projects in the state.

Both MCW faculty members and community-based health care organizations in the state can apply for six funding opportunities, ranging from workforce development efforts to collaborative research. Applications are due by 5 p.m. on Nov. 1 through AHW’s online grant application system.

A total of $1.5 million is allocated for community-led projects aimed at policy or systems change, while $2 million will go toward basic science and clinical/population science research collaboration projects at MCW. Another $1.5 million is for population health community projects, and $1 million is meant for MCW-led population health research.

Meanwhile, about $2.5 million in grants will go to workforce development projects from both community organizations and MCW faculty.

“Through these funding opportunities we are seeking out Wisconsin’s innovators, collaborators, and problem-solvers who share our goal of making positive changes in health possible across the state.” said Dr. Jesse Ehrenfeld, director of the endowment and senior associate dean MCW.

A release shows AHW has provided more than $310 million for more than 515 health projects since 2004.
