A quick reminder that Komen Mid Michigan Community Grant applications are due Friday November 14, 2014.
We have identified the following funding priority areas:
Priority One: Support access to breast screening services and/or diagnostics for women who are uninsured, underinsured, or have a high deductible who are either aged 40-49, under age 40 with a breast health concern, and/or who are under age 40 and considered high risk. Applicants must identify gaps in coverage in the ACA breast screening mandate and local Breast and Cervical Cancer Control Programs to justify the need for services.
Priority Two: Promote breast health education and the importance of early detection and regular screening for low income women across the service area, particularly in the greater areas of Lansing, Jackson, and Ypsilanti, with an emphasis on reaching Black women.
Priority Three: Provide breast cancer survivors with programs offering emotional, social, and physical support during and following breast cancer treatment.
The priorities of Komen Mid Michigan are based on the findings of the Affiliate’s needs assessment of the service area found in the 2011 Community Profile, as well as findings from the 2015 Community Profile which is in process. All applicants should be familiar with the 2011 Community Profile, and should address the new gaps created in our community following enactment of the Affordable Care Act.
All applications must be submitted through the Grants eManagement System (GeMS).

The Michigan Strategic Fund on Tuesday approved the Community College Skilled Trades Equipment Program, an initiative that will make $50 million available to Michigan community colleges for the purchase of equipment that will allow the colleges to deliver educational programs in high-wage, high-and-middle-skill and high-demand occupations, the Michigan Economic Development Corporation said in a statement.
"The community college funds will assist in the delivery of educational programs, degrees and credentials required for high-wage and high-demand occupations in skilled trades," Governor Rick Snyder said. "Michigan intends to lead our nation in skilled trades training and providing community colleges with funding assistance is a huge step forward in that direction."
Community colleges can request up to $4.8 million in CCSTEP funds. The Request for Proposals will be released in November 2014 and applications will be due by Jan. 31, 2015. Awards will be announced in February 2015.
