The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services is offering a funding opportunity for local and tribal public health agencies to advance Public Health Accreditation Board (PHAB) accreditation readiness activities. Three (3) awards of $10,000 each will be provided for public health agencies to improve their readiness to apply for national accreditation by PHAB. Funding may be used to complete PHAB required plans, an accreditation readiness self-assessment, or other accreditation readiness activities.
Eligible applicants must demonstrate an area of need for their agency in one of the listed categories of accreditation readiness activities. Completed applications must be submitted by 5:00 pm EST on January 31, 2017. Additionally, agencies should submit a letter of intent via email to Jessie Jones (firstname.lastname@example.org) by January 20, 2017. The project period will run from March 1, 2017, to August 31, 2017.
