The Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) has issued a Request for Proposal (RFP) for Emergency Medical Services (EMS) workforce grants to provide funding for enhancing and training of Michigan EMS workforce personnel.

The focus of the program is to continue and expand the workforce development program used for training people in EMS. The intent is to address the critical shortage of paramedics statewide and increase accessibility through barrier reduction to enrollment in EMS education programming, specifically paramedic programs, in Michigan.

MDHHS has identified several uses for funding.

The award period begins Oct. 1, 2023, and ends Sept. 30, 2024. MDHHS expects to award approximately $8 million, with a maximum award of $350,000 per applicant. Grant applications must be submitted electronically through the EGrAMS program by 3 p.m. Friday, June 30.

A pre-application conference will be held to provide instruction on using the EGrAMS system. The pre-application conference will be held on Tuesday, May 23 at 1 p.m. and will last approximately 90 minutes. The webinar can be accessed at
