How to apply for a Strengthening the Safety Net grant
Who is this for?
If you’re a clinic in Michigan that provides free health care to uninsured and underinsured residents, this information tells you how to apply for a Strengthening the Safety Net grant.
Affordable health care and healthy communities go hand-in-hand. That’s why Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan believes in giving a hand to free health clinics in Michigan. Our Strengthening the Safety Net grants help them reach low-income residents who might otherwise go without health care.
If your clinic serves the uninsured and underinsured and you’d like to apply for a grant, here’s what you need to do.
About the grants
Clinics that provide health care services and help their patients enroll in health coverage may request up to $15,000 to support operations or services. This includes medical, dental, mental health and vision care. Enrollment assistance can be offered on site or through a partner, as long as patients are getting the help they need. New this year, the medical director must routinely report to the board of directors on quality assurance in order for the clinic to qualify for a grant.
