Successful applicants will feature a multi-sector network of partners, including those not traditionally involved in health improvement efforts, with the necessary expertise to address grassroots policy, environmental or systems change in their communities. All projects must have one primary applicant organization that is a Wisconsin-based, non-profit, IRS tax exempt 501(c)3 or governmental organization and is responsible for the fiduciary and reporting requirements on behalf of the larger partnership.
All projects must also include formal partnership with an eligible MCW academic partner. Eligible academic partner(s) must be MCW full-time, part-time, or full professional effort status or eligible faculty teaching in the MCW Community Medical Education Program meeting specified criteria and serving a specific role on the project, with additional academic partners participating as needed. Please see the Call for Changemakers (PDF) RFP for additional eligibility criteria.
