    Helping moms and babies in Illinois

    The Illinois Chapter community grants program is designed to invest in priority projects that further the March of Dimes mission, support national and state objectives, and further our strategic goal of reducing disparities in birth outcomes. We award grants based on a number of criteria, including the group or organization’s ability to accomplish its goals, as well as the potential impact a project will have in helping us prevent premature births, birth defects and infant mortality. Applications will be accepted from organizations focusing on the following priority areas:

      • Male involvement for targeting males across the reproductive life span
      • Smoking reduction/cessation programming for pregnant women and women of reproductive age
      • Weight management and healthy lifestyle programming for overweight/obese women during and after pregnancy
      • Breastfeeding  programming and education focused on improving maternal and neonatal health outcomes and reducing health inequities
      • Management of chronic conditions for overweight/obese women during and after pregnancy

    If you have any questions, please contact Priscilla Williams, Associate Director of Program Services at PWilliams@marchofdimes.org

    Proposals will be reviewed by a multi-disciplinary Program Services Committee. Applicants will be notified of their funding status by January 2016. The grant period is from February 2016-January 2017.

    In order to be eligible to receive a March of Dimes Illinois Chapter grant, an organization must be an incorporated not-for-profit 501(c)(3), a for profit organization or government agency. The March of Dimes does not award grants to individuals. Applicants must disclose any conflict of interest due to representation by their organization on the chapter's Program Services Committee or the Chapter or Division Board of Directors.
