MI Impact Grant application open

LANSING– The Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity announced that the $15 million MI Impact Grant application is now open. Michigan nonprofits who provide programming to lift people out of poverty should apply by Friday, June 23.

The grant program, which is designed to support the critical work of nonprofits who provide meaningful and sustained impact in the communities they serve, will prioritize partnerships with larger nonprofits that share the state’s commitment to providing services that help lift Michigan residents out of poverty and above the ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) threshold.

Large nonprofits could receive one-time grant funds between $1 to $2 million for the time period of Aug. 24, 2023, to Aug. 24, 2025, to create programming or expand current programming that supports disproportionately impacted communities in their recovery from the pandemic.

To be eligible for this funding, organizations must be a Michigan-based, 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(19) nonprofit or a fiscally sponsored project by a 501(c)(3) or 501(c)(19).

For more information, and to apply for the grant, go to the Michigan Poverty Task Force’s nonprofit webpage at bit.ly/3o8Dp9E or email LEO-PovertyTaskForce@michigan.gov.
