Assistance Application (MDHHS-1171)
Once you've created your MI Bridges account, you can view your case information, upcoming appointments, and make changes to your case. No waiting in line, no traveling to your local MDHHS office - it's all online from the convenience of your own home or public computer.
If you do not have computer access, or prefer to complete a paper application and take it in to your local MDHHS office, use the link below to get started.
The MDHHS-1171 contains an application for assistance and program specific supplement forms. Be sure to read the information booklet before you sign the Assistance Application. The entire application for assistance, as well as the applicable program supplement form(s), must be printed, completed and delivered to the MDHHS office closest to you. If you are unable to finish the entire application today, you may complete the filing form page titled Applicant Registration and return it to MDHHS.
Old MI Bridges Site is Closing
If you started an application before April 2, 2018 and need to complete it, you can access our old MI Bridges site until the end of May 2018. Be sure to wrap up any work you started in the old system before that date to avoid losing any of your application. Do not use the old MI Bridges site for any new applications.
