The Michigan Department of Community Health (MDCH) administers a grant program for free clinic organizations providing health care services to the uninsured population of Michigan.

Eligible clinics must meet the following criteria:

  • The clinic is located within Michigan and provides health care services to the uninsured population of Michigan.
  • The clinic, or the organization under which it operates, has 501(c)(3) or other nonprofit status.
  • The majority of clinic care comes from volunteer health care professionals.
  • Services provided by the clinic are free of charge.
