Security Health Plan of Wisconsin announced Thursday it will invest $250,000 in Healthy Communities Grants this year to address children’s health, behavioral health and aging health issues.

“We’re determined to make a lasting, positive impact on the health of our neighbors,” said Steve Youso, Security Health Plan chief administrative officer. “Studies show that many of the factors that have the greatest impact on our health happen not in a hospital or a clinic but in our homes, schools and communities.”

Healthy Communities Grants can be used to start new projects or improve programs that already exist. The grants are for one year and the maximum award for a grant is $50,000 per application.

Security Health Plan encourages grants that feature community collaboration. The applications must also address components of health literacy.

The application period for Health Community Grants is under way, with letters of intent due by June 9. More information is available on the Community Giving webpage at

“Healthy Communities Grants mark another way that Security Health Plan invests responsibly in improving the health of our neighbors,” Youso said. “We’re looking forward to the creative and collaborative spirit that these grants will foster.”
