Community Rehabilitation Organization Set Aside Program

About Community Rehabilitation Organizations (CROs)

A Community Rehabilitation Organization (CRO) is a non-profit charitable organization or institution incorporated in Michigan that is operated for the purpose of carrying out a recognized program of employment and training services for people with disabilities.

About the Community Rehabilitation Organization Committee

The Management and Budget Act (MCL 18.1293-18.1297) establishes the Committee on the Purchase of Goods and Services from Community Rehabilitation Organizations, commonly known as the CRO Committee, that identifies, reviews, and recommends approval of requests from CROs to provide goods and services for purchase by the State of Michigan. The committee also establishes fair market prices for these goods and services.

For more information about the program and how to request a contract be set aside, read the Operations Manual (PDF).


Committee meetings are open to the public with committee members appointed by the Governor. View meeting info, minutes, and membership on the Community Rehabilitation Organization Committee page
