LHD #17 INFO SIBSHOP GRANTS
Friday, June 8, 2018 8:39 AM
The Family Center for Children and Youth with Special Health Care Needs (Family Center) is excited to announce an opportunity to extend our family support services to siblings of children with special health care needs who reside in the State of Michigan.
The Family Center is offering small grant proposals for the 2018 - 2019 fiscal year (10/1/18 - 9/30/19) to support siblings of children with special health care needs using the evidence-based Sibshop model. The Maternal and Child Health Bureau defines children with special health care needs as those who have or are at increased risk for a chronic physical, developmental, behavioral, or emotional condition. This grant opportunity provides a unique opportunity for community-based collaboration.
The goal of the grant is to provide statewide opportunities for brothers and sisters of children with special health and developmental needs to obtain peer support and education within a recreational context with a certified Sibshop.
Attached you will find the application for the Regional Sibshop Grant for the year 2018-2019. The deadline to have the application postmarked and mailed is Friday July 20, 2018. Please note this is a completely fillable PDF application.
Each Region is eligible to receive up to $1,000 for their project! Please see the attachment for the application and guidelines.
