The State of Michigan through the Make it in Michigan Competitiveness Fund will match five percent (5%) of the total amount awarded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for eligible coalition awardees of the Community Change Grants program. This funding is intended to add to the project size or further build organizational capacity, without limitations. Community Change Grant applicants interested in receiving a 5% match need to submit their application to the EPA by July 1 and request a letter of commitment via this form.

Window 3 TAC Support Applications: May 15, 2024 - May 31, 2024

TAC is currently accepting applications for grant identification, grant writing, and march funding support. Window 3 will be open from May 15, 2024 to May 31, 2024. 

The Online Application for Technical Assistance is available HERE

Before applying, please read the TAC guidance available here in full. Reach out to Kris Brady at BradyK4@michigan.gov if you have any additional questions. 

This application period, referred to as Window 3, is opening for the release of 23 federal Notices of Funding Opportunities (NOFO) which will continue to be released through Spring and Summer of 2024. In order to support grant writing applications that are most likely to attain federal funding, the State will prioritize projects that it deems to be viable and competitive for the relevant funding opportunities. Projects that are not considered competitive (due to project readiness or other reasons) may be considered for other forms of technical support to help make the project more competitive for future funding rounds.

About the Michigan Infrastructure Office Technical Assistance Center

The purpose of the Michigan Infrastructure Office Technical Assistance Center (TAC) is to provide technical assistance, planning, and matching grants to local units of government, planning organizations, and federally recognized Tribal nations to help draw federal infrastructure money to Michigan’s communities.

TAC provides a suite of resources to support Michigan communities in applying for federal grant funding. TAC is continuing to build out the full range of resources. TAC currently offers three key support services: grant identification, grant writing, and match funding. These three services will be available to eligible recipients by an application to TAC. Full guidance for these services is available here. TAC will continue to expand support offerings for additional entities in the future.
