Strengthening the Safety Net Grant

Falling sick, or just plain falling, is scary when you don’t have enough health insurance or any at all. Luckily there’s a safety net: free and low-cost health clinics. Our Strengthening the Safety Net grants help make sure these clinics are there for those who need it most.

This program strengthens and stabilizes access to health care for Michigan's uninsured and underinsured residents. Since 2005, we've awarded more than $11 million in grants so safety net clinics can care for the uninsured, underinsured and newly insured.
