The Community Health Impact program supports bold ideas that empower communities to solve their most pressing health challenges. Grantees are health-focused and community-based, and include grassroots organizations, neighborhood groups, and small to medium nonprofits. They’re working across issues ranging from oral health to health literacy, but they all share a commitment to solutions driven by those most affected by a particular issue.
These organizations are reducing health disparities, improving health equity, building community wellness, increasing social integration for marginalized populations, bolstering community support systems, and expanding community engagement efforts. By responding to community needs and drawing on the expertise of lived experience, they’re building stronger, healthier communities throughout Michigan.
These grants are intended to support stronger, healthier communities around the state by being responsive to community needs.
Grant requests may not exceed a maximum budget of $150,000. Grants can be 1 or 2 years in duration, but the total request is limited to $150,000.
