MDHHS issues Request for Proposals to address racial and ethnic disparities in the juvenile justice system
MDHHS expects to award $436,712 over a two-year period to one agency through its RFP process.
A Request for Proposals (RFP) went out this month to stakeholders in Michigan’s juvenile justice system, asking leaders to implement and evaluate programming as it refers to Racial and Ethnic Disparities (RED) in the system.
The move is a collaboration between the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) and the Michigan Committee on Juvenile Justice, which works to improve practices, policies and philosophies in Michigan’s juvenile justice system.
MDHHS expects to award $436,712 over a two-year period to one agency through its RFP process. Applicants must demonstrate that RED exists in their jurisdictions and propose activities to address the disparities at arrest.
Grant applications must be submitted electronically through the EGrAMS program by 3 p.m. on May 12. The program period begins July 1, 2022, and ends Sept. 30, 2022. Successful applicants may be able to receive funding through Sept. 30, 2023, subject to funding availability and acceptable performance.
