AHW issues call for applications to advance Wisconsin's health workforce
September 13, 2019 - The Advancing a Healthier Wisconsin Endowment invites eligible investigators and community partners to submit an application in response to the Call for Innovations to Advance Wisconsin’s Health Workforce. Through this funding, AHW aims to support projects to develop innovative and sustainable programs, tools, and resources to advance Wisconsin’s current and future health research, health care, and community health improvement workforces. Letter of Intent applications are due November 22, 2019 by 5:00 pm CST.
This funding is available to community-led and Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW)-led collaborations. Under this grant opportunity, AHW intends to fund up to 12 meritorious projects conducted over a funding period of up to four (4) years, beginning July 1, 2020. Each project should anticipate a budget of up to $400,000.
Funded projects will be expected to:
- Build, develop, and/or adapt a resource to support development of Wisconsin’s health workforce that delivers content in actionable formats that incorporate best practices in adult learning and develop sustainability, promotion, and evaluation plans for the resource
- Test and pilot the resource and evaluation approach and refine the resource based on initial outcomes to ensure it meets the identified need, serves to advance the desired health workforce(s) in Wisconsin, and is accessible to reach the desired sectors and fields of the health workforce where they are and when support is needed
- Institutionalize the resulting resource and its associated sustainability, promotion, and evaluation plans into an existing system to support ongoing accessibility, promotion, and evaluation of impact on Wisconsin’s health workforce
- Commit to long-term evaluation of the impact of the resource to demonstrate workforce advancements and impact on Wisconsin’s health beyond the project period
