LANSING, Mich. - The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) Division of Victim Services is seeking proposals to provide culturally specific services to victims of crime.

Proposals should be for Culturally Specific or Responsive Services for Underserved Victims of Crime, which may include services for victims/survivors of crime who face service barriers due to race, ethnicity, geographic location, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity or abilities and limitations. The focus of the program is to expand and strengthen services through organizations with prior experience serving victims of crime and managing federal or state funding to serve those victims.

Applicants eligible to submit a proposal to provide services include nonprofits exempt from taxation or governmental organizations with a culturally responsive victim services program. Eligible applicants must have provided crime victim services for two years or demonstrate meaningful collaboration with local, state or nationally recognized culturally specific organizations.

The award period begins Oct. 1, 2022, and ends Sept. 30, 2023. MDHHS anticipates issuing up to 25 awards with a maximum of $950,000 possible for a single award.

Grant applications must be submitted electronically through the EGrAMS program by 3 p.m., June 9.
