The funding for this program comes from the federal Coronavirus Relief Funds awarded to the State of Michigan as part of the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA).

Other important facts for you to know:
Each eligible application will be reviewed by nonprofit and community leaders from the applicant's region. Applications will be scored based upon demonstrated need, narrative, and supporting documentation. Grant awards will be disbursed beginning in August, 2023.
Because this is a federally funded and state-operated program, there are certain registration requirements that all grantees will need to follow in order to receive funding. Additionally, we expect that there will be state reporting requirements and, depending on funding awarded, there may be additional compliance requirements for some grantees. More information about relevant compliance requirements will be forthcoming.
We look forward to reviewing your application.
