Executive Summary

The Wisconsin Primary Health Care Association proposes to have 22 AmeriCorps Members who will serve as certified application counselors and community resource coordinators at Federally Qualified Health Centers and Public Health Departments throughout the state of Wisconsin. At the end of the first program year, the AmeriCorps Members will be responsible for improving access to health care, connecting clients with resources to improve their health, and affecting modifiable health behaviors. In addition, the AmeriCorps Members will leverage an additional 300 volunteers who will be engaged in connecting clients with resources to improve their health, promoting healthy lifestyles, and building healthy communities. This program will focus on the CNCS focus area of Healthy Futures. The CNCS investment of $266,200 will be matched with $209,000, $83,700 in public funding, and $125,300 in private funding.
