If selected, organizations would provide supervised visitation and safe visitation exchange for children with parents in situations involving domestic or dating violence, child abuse, sexual assault or stalking.

The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) Division of Victim Services is seeking proposals from organizations that can assist with visitation between parents and children.

If selected, organizations would provide supervised visitation and safe visitation exchange for children with parents in situations involving domestic or dating violence, child abuse, sexual assault or stalking.

Eligible applicants include federally recognized Native American tribes and 501(c)(3) nonprofits, including faith-based organizations.

This opportunity is open only to Supervised Visitation and Safe Exchange programs to expand and enhance existing services. MDHHS said examples of this include offering a second location, employing bilingual monitors and increasing services hours by providing additional evening and weekend shifts.

The award period is Oct. 1, 2022, through Sept. 30, 2023. MDHHS anticipates issuing up to five awards with a maximum of $250,000 possible for a single award.

Grant applications must be submitted electronically through the state’s EGrAMS website by 3 p.m., Wednesday, July 20.
