Intent to Apply Open for New Relief Fund
Michigan’s nonprofits who are struggling with the negative impacts and hardships of the COVID-19 pandemic can now take the first step to receive much-needed funding from the $35 million MI Nonprofit Relief Fund for serving their hard-hit communities.
Small nonprofits could receive one-time grant funds from $5,000 to $25,000 in Spring/Summer 2023 to continue or expand their services to areas hit the hardest by COVID-19 and to populations that are underserved and underrepresented.
The Michigan Nonprofit Association (MNA) and the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity (LEO) today (2/17/23) announced the launch of the “intent to apply” phase for the relief fund, which is focused on assisting small charitable nonprofit organizations. The website is open and available for nonprofits to fill out the intent to apply form at MINonprofitRelief.org.
The initial “intent to apply” short online form is estimated to take no more than 10 minutes to complete. Questions include basic information about the nonprofit and various questions with yes or no answers to assess the nonprofit’s needs. The second phase of the application process for small nonprofits, estimated to launch March 22, 2023, will be a more detailed application.
