Michigan Benefits Access promotes the use of a multiple benefit application system, called MI Bridges, through community outreach. MI Bridges is a system developed and maintained by the Department of Human Services. The Michigan Association of United Ways provides training to community organizations to enable staff/volunteers to assist persons directly with applying for public benefits on MI Bridges, as well as, informing the community about the availability of the system for anyone to use on-line. An MBA and MI Bridges Trainer will share the goals of initiative, the expanded features of the technology, possible levels of engagement for community based organizations, and how to navigate MI Bridges when assisting an applicant.
