ForwardHealth: Resources for Community Partners

Member Feedback Alliance Request for Applications 

New deadline: January 27, 2023. Apply now. 
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) is seeking applications from community-based organizations, health care agencies, and community groups interested in engaging with patients, clients, or individuals they serve to obtain feedback about their DHS services and programs. The data gathered will be used to inform decision-making for program and service improvements for the grantee agency as well as for the Division of Medicaid Services.

Community-based agencies and groups have a long history of engagement and trust built with the populations they serve. The request for applications enables DHS to compensate organizations as trusted messengers to gain feedback from the people DHS programs serve.

Read the public notice for more information and to apply.
