WISCONSIN ESTABLISHES NEW GRANT PROGRAM
Governor Evers has established a new grant program in order to maintain patient care of the highest quality. The new grant program is funded by the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act and totals $100 million dollars.
The funding will support emergency medical services, home and community-based services and long-term care providers such as skilled nursing and assisted living facilities.
“These providers need this additional funding to maintain patient care of the highest quality,” said Department of Health Services Secretary-designee Andrea Palm. “The services they provide save lives on a daily basis, and that is especially true during this pandemic.”

Maintaining patient care of the highest quality is the mission of Wisconsin Caregiver Academy, which has developed Train-the-Trainer courses approved by the Wisconsin Department of Health Services, Bureau of Assisted Living and the Division of Quality Assurance.
The courses provide participants with the program knowledge, training skills and curriculum to offer high-quality training within their own organizations for Medication Administration, Standard Precautions, Fire Safety and First Aid and Choking. Learn more.
