Michigan Makes $35M in Funding Available To Small Nonprofits
by The NonProfit Times on February 23rd, 2023
The Michigan Nonprofit Association, in conjunction with the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity, has opened the application process for relief funding. Small nonprofits, those with annual revenue of less than $1 million, are able to indicate their intent to apply for funds from the MI Nonprofit Relief Fund, which has $35 million to distribute.
The Michigan Nonprofit Association is administering the MI Nonprofit Relief Fund.
Leaders from small nonprofits are encourages to fill out a short initial application which will help fund administrators assess their needs. The administrators will launch a second phase of the application process on or around March 22, which will include a more detailed needs assessment review. Larger nonprofits will have an additional $15 million made available to them later this year.
In addition to the revenue restrictions, eligible recipients must be either Michigan-based 501(c)(3) nonprofits or projects sponsored by a 501(c)(3) nonprofits. Recipients do not have to be members of the Michigan Nonprofit Association.
