Thank you to the over 2,000 Michigan nonprofits that applied for grant funding under the MI Nonprofit Relief Fund! Grant applications closed last Friday, May 5, 2023, and you’re probably wondering what happens next...

NEXT STEPS:
1. Verification of all documentation submitted (990s, W9, state compliance) If any documentation is missing, the applicant will be notified via email. Applicants will have business 10 days to fix and resubmit. If the applicant does not resubmit, the application will not move forward.
2. Each application will be peer-reviewed and scored. Each application will be peer-reviewed three times to ensure nothing is missed.


THE REVIEW PROCESS IS UNDERWAY
We anticipate the awarding of the grants will begin in August, 2023.

After grant award decisions are made, all applicants will be notified of their award status. All grant applicants will be invited to participate in peer-learning circles designed to strengthen the resiliency of nonprofit organizations in Michigan.

After grant award decisions are made, all applicants will be notified of their award status. Grant scores will be made available upon request. Additionally, all grant applicants will be invited to participate in peer learning circles designed to strengthen the resiliency of nonprofit organizations in Michigan.

Funding is being made available through The American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA). This project is being supported, in whole or in part, by federal award number SLFRP0127 awarded to the State of Michigan by the U.S. Department of the Treasury. It is federal pandemic funding that, through the MI Nonprofit Relief Fund, the State of Michigan intends to utilize to help ensure equitable recovery for small nonprofit organizations statewide.

No, your nonprofit does not have to be member organization to apply.

The Michigan Nonprofit Association (MNA) is partnering with the State of Michigan’s Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity to design the grant program and select grantees as well as manage the application portal, grant process, and award payments.

The fund being administered by MNA is designed to provide aid and recovery to nonprofit organizations with an emphasis on those with annual revenues of less than $1 million that were negatively impacted by the pandemic.
