The Health Fund has supported improved infant and maternal health since our founding, and our 2021-2025 Strategic Plan called on us to expand our work in this area. The 2023 Maternal & Infant Health Initiative is our second grant round dedicated to this important area and builds on our previous efforts, lessons learned from our grant partners over the past several years, and feedback from stakeholders across Michigan about the most pressing needs, persistent challenges, and gaps where our support could make a real difference.

The goal of the 2023 Maternal and Infant Health Initiative is to reduce disparities, increase access to care, and improve outcomes for infants and their mothers. The Health Fund seeks proposals for community-driven, locally focused projects that must incorporate at least one of three priority categories:

  • Address service delivery environment barriers to improve access to equitable health care
  • Increase access to protective and clinical interventions
  • Address targeted policies, practices, and procedures at the local or practice level that impact or prohibit the best outcomes for mothers and infants.

Our 2023 Maternal and Infant initiative is now closed. Grant awards will be announced in May.
