The Wisconsin Partnership Program invites proposals to its COVID-19 Response Grant Program, to help community organizations and UW-Madison researchers respond to the challenges created by the COVID-19 pandemic. Community organizations and UW-Madison faculty and academic staff with principal investigator (PI) status may apply for funding.
The COVID-19 Response Grant Program is a strategic, flexible, rapid-response mechanism designed to support innovative, responsive, high-impact projects that aim to improve the health of the people of Wisconsin by lessening the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic through scientific, medical, or public health approaches and/or by supporting those most at risk or experiencing the greatest disparities in care.
Award amounts will range between $25,000 and $150,000 based on proposed budgets, for a duration no longer than 12 months. Proposals are due April 15, 2020.

The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation invites proposals to its Global Ideas for U.S. Solutions Program: Cities Taking Action to Address Health, Equity, and Climate Change. Proposals are encouraged from both U.S.-based applicants to adopt or adapt a successful approach from outside the United States, and from non-U.S.-based applicants with a successful approach that could work in the United States. Submissions are encouraged from teams that include both U.S.-based and non-U.S.-based members. The program seeks to attract diversity of thought, professional background, race, ethnicity, life experience, and cultural perspective in the applicant pool. Building a Culture of Health means integrating health into all aspects of society, so multisector partnerships and collaboration are encouraged.
