About this grant

MI*Voice is a coalition of county-based community organizations affiliated with the Gamaliel Foundation. Together, these organizations represent more than 120 congregations in five Michigan counties working collaboratively to address issues of common concern, especially those impacting state land-use policy. This grant will enable MI*Voice to provide leadership training to 150 new leaders; offer advanced leadership training to 60 leaders; host 125 issue education workshops attracting at least 2,000 residents; increase the membership base in each of the five county-based organizations; help each organization develop an action plan; host five countywide summits on land use and growth management; and work with each local organization to identify and implement next steps for their work.
