Five community organizations working to reduce health disparities among racial and ethnic minority populations will receive Minority Health Program mini-grants that focus on several Healthy Wisconsin priorities, including drug and alcohol use, suicide prevention, and nutrition and physical activity, Wisconsin Department of Health Services officials announced today.

The grants are awarded annually to organizations statewide that work to address barriers and improve the health of racial and ethnic minority populations in Wisconsin. 

“We know that to close the gap in health care outcomes for minority populations, targeted efforts like these can get us closer to “everyone living better, longer” in Wisconsin,” said State Health Officer Karen McKeown.
