2022-2023 Funding Opportunity

Applications for the Michigan Medicine-Community Health Services (MM-CHS) grants are NOW OPEN (December 5, 2022-January 20, 2023).

We are looking for projects that influence the Community Health Needs Assessment priorities mental health & substance use disorders, obesity & related illness, and pre-conceptual and perinatal health.

Projects must be  focused on innovation and/or strengthen programs, policies, and other interventions within Washtenaw County that target health equity and the social determinants of health (SDOH). For more information on SDOH CLICK HERE.  

This is the second funding cycle for MM-CHS; in 2017, MM operationalized the CHNA/IP through funding 27 projects that focused on at least one of the health priority areas and SDOH/Health Equity. Michigan Medicine has renewed its commitment in the 2021 UNITE CHNA and IP to continue to support community health and the implementation of the CHNA by funding community-based work.

In current CHNA & IP, there were both targeted and emerging SDOH that were identified. Targeted SDOH included: Poverty, Housing/Homelessness, Social Isolation, & Food Security and emerging SDOH were: Climate Change, Incarceration, & Medical Debt. We are looking for projects in both the targeted and emerging SDOH, as well as other SDOH.
