The New MI Bridges Self-Service Portal
As a part of MDHHS’s Integrated Service Delivery effort, MI Bridges and the Assistance Application are undergoing transformative changes. These changes have been made in close collaboration with clients, community partners, and MDHHS caseworkers, who have provided input and feedback throughout the process. The new MI Bridges will enable residents to identify their needs and connect to community resources that meet those needs to improve stability over time. These resources include community programs and organizations through a partnership with Michigan 2-1-1.
