The StriveTogether Wisconsin Partnership Receives Nearly $350,000 Grant

The Wisconsin Partnership, which includes Achieve Brown County, Building Our Future, Higher Expectations for Racine County and Milwaukee Succeeds, has received nearly $350,000 from StriveTogether, a national nonprofit working to bring communities together around data to make decisions and improve results for kids. The partnership will use its grant award to test, learn and spread strategies focused on advancing policy change within Wisconsin.

The grant award is part of StriveTogether’s Cradle to Career Community Challenge, which seeks to create local change to enable economic mobility. The program’s goal is to strengthen and align the many systems, such as education, employment, health and housing, that shape opportunity for children and families in America.

“We’re excited to have been selected from so many worthy applicants and look forward to continuing the work with our partners across the state,” said Adam Hardy, executive director of Achieve Brown County.

The Wisconsin Partnership will focus on addressing mobilization of systems-level barriers that prevent families from accessing high-quality early care and education through community engagement.

Through the Community Challenge, more than $20 million over the next three years will fund projects across the country that aim to shift public policy and engage the systems needed to help students progress from kindergarten to postsecondary completion and finding a job.

The Wisconsin Partnership’s grant is part of the Community Challenge’s Strategic Initiatives Fund, which supports projects working to advance policy change for children by engaging policy leaders, leading grassroots advocacy and coordinating efforts within state and local coalitions. The Wisconsin Partnership has one of seven policy-focused projects being awarded grants of up to $350,000 per year for three years.
