The Wisconsin Partnership Program (WPP) is working to greatly improve the health of all Wisconsin residents. Through our funding, we support public health initiatives, address health disparities, create education and training programs that prepare the next generation of health care professionals, and invest in research that addresses diverse health and health care issues.
Advancing Health and Health Equity
Through community grants, WPP supports community-led partnerships and collaborations designed to improve health and advance health equity across diverse communities and geographic areas.
Supporting Innovative Research and Education
WPP faculty grants support innovative research to prevent, diagnose, treat and cure diseases. These grants target issues affecting Wisconsinites, including Alzheimer’s disease, cancer, diabetes, and more.
