Key Points:

    • $15 million was allotted for the MI Impact Grant.
    • The program will prioritize partnerships with larger nonprofits.
    • Larger nonprofits could receive one-time grant funds between $1 to $2 million to create or expand programming supporting disproportionally impacted communities.
