Home > Lactation Education Grants for People of Color

In alignment with the Kansas Breastfeeding Coalition’s commitment to addressing racial disparities in breastfeeding, the Kansas Breastfeeding Coalition (KBC) provided $10,000 in education grants. These grants were awarded in November 2020 to support aspiring Latinx, Black, and Indigenous lactation support providers. Grant recipients are from the following communities: Kansas City (2), Topeka (2), Wichita (3) and Southwest Kansas (3). Special thanks to the Kansas Health Foundation and Kansas Department of Health & Environment for funding these educational opportunities.
