HWPP Responsive Component
Through a Call for Changemakers (PDF), the Responsive component will support Wisconsin-based organizations, local leaders and citizens to create strong, healthy neighborhoods and communities. Participants in the Call for Changemakers will demonstrate how a range of partners from multiple sectors can work together to pursue evidence based strategies around grassroots policy, systems and environment (PSE) that address the key determinants that most strongly influence community health.
Successful projects will be awarded funds to support non-lobbying activities focused on either grassroots policy, systems or environmental 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) related to the key determinants of health. Increasing the scope and availability of existing community programs is not the primary goal of this funding, so applications must be clearly focused on a system change goal. Selected projects must demonstrate an appropriate level of funding and timeframe to accomplish the project scope.
