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
The main funds available to clinics are noncompetitive grants up to $20,000. Clinics may request up to $10,000 for operations and up to $10,000 for dental or patient advocacy services. These grants can pay for clinic operations, clinical supplies, volunteer coordination, to increase clinic hours and more. We give these grants out as applications come in until available funding is gone.
