Michigan’s neighborhoods, towns, and cities know what they need to improve the health of residents. Through the Community Health Impact program, the Health Fund supports local or regional organizations with bold ideas to address health challenges. While these grants are typically responsive to local data or targeted work in Michigan communities, the projects often have the potential to expand or be replicated throughout the state. Proposals should address one of the following eight priority areas:

  • Infant mortality
  • Health services for foster and adopted children
  • Wellness and fitness programs
  • Access to healthy food
  • Behavioral health services
  • Technology enhancements
  • Health-related transportation services
  • Foodborne illness prevention

You can find more information on each focus area on this page.
