This webpage serves as a hub of
information for Michigan Health Centers' capital development efforts, as
well as potential funders who are interested in supporting the
expansion of Michigan Health Centers.
Michigan Health Centers currently provide health care services to over 615,000 Michigan residents annually. They have also responded rapidly to the need for additional services in this time of increased unemployment, heightened numbers of uninsured, and increased Medicaid beneficiaries and underinsured. Further, Medicaid and health insurance expansion is anticipated with full implementation of the Affordable Care Act. However, substantial capital is required to make the necessary investments in facilities and capital equipment projects in order to continue to increase Michigan Health Centers; capacity to provide needed access to comprehensive, affordable high quality primary and preventive health care particularly for the medically underserved.
In response to this need, Michigan Primary Care Association established a capital development workgroup. The workgroup has developed a capital development program to assist Michigan Health Centers by identifying capital development opportunities; potential sources of funding, finance and other assistance; planning and development information; potential financial consultants and experienced developers. During its first three years, it also sought and received grant funding from The Kresge Foundation to provide a technical assistance program in the development of innovative facility and capital equipment projects, and to seek and make available additional sources of funding for these projects. MPCA staff continues to provide technical assistance and updates of capital project informational resources on this website.
