At the Health Fund, we continually ask ourselves how we can listen better to improve our service to applicants, grantees, and communities. Last December, we shared results from our second independent survey of both grantees plus applicants whose proposals were not funded. One of the key themes from their feedback was a desire for more information about Health Fund projects. Today, we’re proud to share two tools that make it easier than ever to learn more about the Health Fund’s grantmaking:  

First, with the help of Data Driven Detroit, we created an interactive map that geographically documents every grant we have ever issued. This dashboard shows the total amount awarded to support projects in each county, with sortable data based on grant program, year awarded, and a pre-defined list of keyword tags. The results also display additional, statewide investments for the selected criteria.  

Second, we’re also excited to launch our new searchable grant database, which contains more information about every grant awarded since our inception. Like the map, you can search for grant information by geography, program, year awarded, and a pre-defined list of keyword tags. Additionally, you can search by other keywords and filter by award amount or the primary grant recipient. Search results enable users to access more in-depth information about a grant, including grantee name, grant amount, and a grant summary 

We are committed to ongoing listening, learning, and transparency. We hope these tools provide applicants with greater access to meaningful, searchable information related to successful past applications, and we look forward to making ongoing improvements to better track and share our grantmaking going forward.  

If you have questions or feedback about these features, we’re all ears! Drop us a note at grants@mihealthfund.org
