"We congratulate these 10 successful grantees that emerged from an extremely competitive process with many more excellent proposals than we were able to fund," said Suzanne Greenberg, director of the Children's Trust Fund that is within the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. "We will work closely with our new grantees to build protective factors for children and families that will make safe, healthy childhoods possible for Michigan's children."
