Michigan Nonprofit Association to help oversee $50M relief grant program

Printer-friendly version

The Michigan Nonprofit Association is gearing up to help oversee a new $50 million grant program included in the latest state budget to help small nonprofits recover from pandemic-related losses.

The association, along with the Michigan Department of Labor and Economic Opportunity, will administer the program that will steer funding to nonprofits with budgets of $2 million or less. The funding comes from the federal American Rescue Plan Act.

Michigan Nonprofit Association President and CEO Kelley Kuhn said the program is meant to help small organizations that were — and continue to be — the hardest hit from the COVID-19 pandemic.

“Nonprofits really have not had a lot of opportunities or access to relief programs that have been put in place for other organizations and small businesses. This was our effort so nonprofits would have access to funds given the hardships many of them had as a result of the pandemic,” Kuhn said.
