About this grant

This renewal grant will focus on improving the jobs of the direct-care workforce in Michigan. PHI will inform public policymakers in Michigan about direct-care workforce issues through distribution of its revised Michigan Direct-Care Workforce Fact Sheet and other state and national research and data. The grantee will also expand its work to help direct-care workers achieve economic self-sufficiency through consumer coalitions to assist state policymakers with the implementation of the Affordable Care Act. The effort will help ensure the best possible benefits for this workforce, and pursue long-term care training initiatives in Michigan with a particular focus on playing a strong role in the state’s personal and Home Care Aid State Training Program.
