The Michigan Veterans Affairs Agency (MVAA) is accepting contract proposals from for-profit and not-for-profit organizations to provide administrative management for the MVAA’s 10 Regional Coordinators. The Regional Coordinators, located in each of Michigan’s 10 Economic Prosperity Regions, establish and maintain partnerships with local agencies and community resources that support Michigan’s nearly 600,000 veterans and their families. The Regional Coordinator program operates under the veterans community action team (VCAT) model of care, which has four main elements: leadership, a provider network, outreach and service information, and inter-organizational processes.
The MVAA seeks applications for an initial 18-month grant of up to $1.2 million to maintain the Regional Coordinator program, with an anticipated start date of April 1, 2019. The award includes the option of an additional four years of funding, at up to $800,000 per year, for total potential funding of up to $4.4 million.
