LANSING, Mich. – The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), in collaboration with the Michigan Committee on Juvenile Justice, has issued a Request for Proposals (RFP) for local units of government to implement and evaluate programming to reduce racial and ethnic disparities in the juvenile justice system.
MDHHS is committed to the goal of decreasing disparities, unequal treatment and unequal outcomes amongst youth belonging to racial or ethnic minorities. Applicants funded through this program must demonstrate that racial and ethnic disparities exist in their jurisdiction and must propose activities that will address those disparities.
MDHHS expects to award approximately $800,000 annually through this competitive RFP process to two agencies, with funding of up to $400,000 per year to implement and evaluate programming to reduce racial and ethnic disparities in their jurisdictions.
