North Shore Health Care Foundation  Over $20,000 To Be Awarded in Grants

Applications Due May 1

COOK COUNTY, MINNESOTA  ~~~~~~  April 14, 2021  (LSN)  The North Shore Health Care Foundation (NSHCF) will be awarding $20,000 through its semi-annual in 2021, to community organizations and programs that contribute to equitable health care and healthy living in Cook County. Applications are due by 4 pm, May 1 and October 1. The Foundation works to address health care gaps and needs in Cook County.

“We believe in the possibilities of people, organizations, businesses, and governments working together to cre­ate healthy communities for all in Cook County,” said Valerie Marasco Eliasen, Executive Director. “We believe health is not just the absence of illness, but that a healthy community is reflected in the health of individuals which is embodied in prevention and education regarding health; a community that maintains health through its systems of food, housing, employment, clean water, clean air, healthy exercise and social norms; and access to quality, affordable health care for all.”

In addition to the funds awarded to successful open grant applicants, the NSHCF will also issue a total of $30,000 in annual $10,000 block grants to key partners who contribute to the delivery of our core mission. These include, Care Partners of Cook County for seniors’ services, Cook County Emergency Services to build a joint Live Fire Training Center at the Colvill Volunteer Fire Department site, and Cook County Higher Education for health education.

“Our primary contributions for creating a healthy Cook County lie in our ability to provide and leverage funding, provide educational opportunities including convening community partners to address critical health issues facing the community, and by advocating with others to help us achieve a healthy community,” said Marasco Eliasen. “Where gaps exist, the Health Care Foundation also develops and incubates programs to address critical needs. Success stories in this regard include developing and spinning off Care Partners and the Oral Health Task Force, and now incubating the Cook County MN Restorative Justice program and with the ‘Designs for Life’ free community education series.”

The total dollar amount of grants awarded by NSHCF since its inception in 1993, is over $1,100,000. In 2020, the Foundation also issued $50,000. The following programs, helping to work towards a healthy community for all, received awards in 2020:

  • Care Partners of Cook County – $10,000
  • The COVID-19 Medical Response Fund – $20,000 match to community donations, to ensure health providers and emergency response units have what they need for local response

Very High Fire Danger Across Wisconsin

James Brown 0 278 Article rating: No rating

MADISON, WISCONSIN  ~~~~~~~~  May 14, 2021  (LSN)  The Department of Natural Resources (DNR) is asking the public to stay vigilant and avoid burning because of very high fire danger across Wisconsin, particularly in the northern two-thirds of the state.

The increased fire danger is due to the low relative humidities expected across the state, with the lowest values expected across northern Wisconsin. Temperatures will be warm and the air over Wisconsin will be dry, which are weather conditions that aid in the spread of fires.
