    Helping moms and babies in Wisconsin

    The March of Dimes Wisconsin Chapter funds programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and healthy babies. This includes providing financial support to research and education that will help moms before and during their pregnancies. It also includes working with local medical groups and organizations to improve prenatal care and newborn screening.

    The chapter community grants fund for 2015 is approximately $35,000.  It is anticipated that 2-4 projects will be funded, with grants ranging from $10,000 to $25,000 each. Projects will be considered that address the following focus areas: 

    1.    Providing or enhancing premature birth risk reduction education and/or services including:

    • Providing smoking cessation education and/or services to pregnant women.  Preference should be given to prenatal health education and information/referral services that utilize the "5 A's" counseling approach.
    • Focusing on premature birth recurrence prevention such as education about “17P” (17α hydroxyprogesterone caproate) treatment for women who have had a previous singleton premature birth.
    • Implementing community programs that aim to promote equity in birth outcomes.  This may include March of Dimes programs like Stork’s Nest®, Project Alpha, Becoming a Mom/Comenzando bien®, and The Coming of the Blessing®.

    2.    Enhancing care through the group prenatal care model (e.g. CenteringPregnancy)

    3.    Supporting a quality improvement program related to premature birth prevention with the goal of catalyzing systems change.

    Proposals due:                         February 1, 2015
