Illinois Department of Public Health issues Well-Woman Care Grants

In an effort to improve the health of women of reproductive age, the Illinois Department of Public Health (IDPH) Office of Women’s Health and Family Services has issued $350,000 in competitive grant funding to 14 organizations across the state. 

Organizations will use this funding to develop plans to increase the number of women in their community who obtain a wellness check. 

For women of reproductive age, these visits should include discussion of a reproductive life plan and identification of activities to achieve optimal health prior to pregnancy. 

Locally, the Will County Health Department received $26,640.
