-Alcohol and other drugs, behavioral health and chronic diseases powerfully affect the health of individuals, families and Wisconsin communities, so to help address these issues, Marshfield Clinic Health System and Security Health Plan of Wisconsin, Inc., are partnering to offer funding through their ABCs for Healthy Communities grants.

Up to $300,000 in grant funding will be invested in supporting community efforts to address these multi-faceted issues, the ABCs â€" alcohol and other drug abuse, behavioral health and chronic diseases. MCHS’ mission is to enrich lives by helping people and communities achieve their best health. Since 2012, Security Health Plan, an MCHS entity, has offered community health grants supporting local initiatives, programs and processes addressing community health needs. And now, together, MCHS and Security Health Plan offer these grants to continue making a difference in communities. All proposed initiatives and projects must address social determinants of health â€" education, employment, income, family and social support, community safety, environmental quality and the built environment.

Funding may be used to develop new projects or programs, or to improve existing programs. Organizations serving rural and underserved communities are strongly encouraged to apply. A required letter of intent is due March 30. Grant application deadline is April 27 and award announcements are anticipated to be made the week of May 21.
