Grants of up to $50,000 to Wisconsin nonprofit community-based organizations to enhance the well being and health of underserved residents who are members of eligible minority groups across the State. Funding may support both COVID- and non-COVID related activities and projects that close racial and ethnic health gaps and attain equity for American Indians, Asians, Black/African Americans, and Hispanic/Latino Americans.

The Division of Public Health will award mini grants for the purpose of conducting activities to improve the health status of economically disadvantaged minority group members.

The 2020-2021 Community Grants will fund projects from community-based organizations that are evidence or science-based, promising practices (practice-based evidence), or have sound rationale to primarily help eliminate health disparities, to achieve health equity, and improve health across the lifespan. 

Funding may be used for COVID-19/Coronavirus response/relief activities.
