Request for Proposal

The Foundation doesn’t just wait for grant applications. With the Request for Proposal program, we reach out to Michigan-based safety net organizations that primarily serve the uninsured, underinsured, Medicaid recipients and other vulnerable populations. Our goal is to solicit proposals that align with areas of need that we identify.
