Become a Partner. Help People in Your Community.

Through MI Bridges, individuals are able to apply for and check their benefits at any time, anywhere they have access to the internet. The Michigan Department of Health & Human Services is seeking community partners to help spread the word about MI Bridges and help applicants access this system. There are two ways that community based organizations can get involved and support Michigan Benefit Access:

Access Partners

Access Partners are agencies that agree to promote MBA and MI Bridges by displaying promotional materials about MBA and providing a computer(s) to be utilized by clients to access MI Bridges. The computer(s) does not have to be exclusively for MI Bridges use. As an MBA Access Partner, an agency will be offering individuals without access to a computer or the internet a way to complete the application themselves.

Navigation Partners

Navigation Partners are agencies that agree to promote MBA and MI Bridges by displaying promotional materials, providing a computer(s) to be utilized to access MI Bridges and provide technical and one-on-one navigation assistance to potential MI Bridges applicants. Assistance may vary from answering applicant questions to helping them complete the entire application online.
