MMCBD Fall Community Health Grant Cycle Now Open

(Beaver Dam) Marshfield Medical Center – Beaver Dam is now accepting applications for the fall cycle of its Community Health Grant. The program was created as part of a comprehensive initiative to ensure the hospital’s health and well-being efforts placed a greater focus on local needs.

The community health priorities were identified through a needs assessment last year, in collaboration with community members and organizational leaders. These priorities include alcohol and substance abuse prevention, behavioral health, and chronic disease prevention, among others.

Local not-for-profit organizations actively working to develop new ideas or enhance existing projects that improve the health of residents in Dodge County are encouraged to apply before the September 20th deadline. Interested organizations applying for the stipends, which can range from $1,000 to $10,000, can do so at the hospital’s website.

The Community Health Sub-Committee of the hospital’s Community Advisory Board will review applications and determine which requests are approved.
