New Human Services Partnership 

New Human Services Partnership 

After 10 years, the Washtenaw Coordinated Funding Partnership has ended. We are proud of the work done by Coordinated Funding (or COFU), and also excited for the opportunity to re-envision Human Services partnership in service of equity, and focused on addressing racism, poverty and trauma.

Washtenaw County and City of Ann Arbor leadership will be meeting four times in early 2022 to finalize the framework for the New Human Services Partnership. As we work through this process, we want to make information and resources available to partners and community to provide access to information, as well as opportunities to engage and inform the process.

This webpage will evolve as the process evolves, so please check regularly for updates including ways to participate. Last updated May 2022.

Main Goals with New Human Services Partners:

  • Incorporate Equity into the process
  • Focus on addressing racism, poverty, and trauma
  • Incorporate lessons learned from COVID-19 response
  • Ease of process – for applicants and staff

As a reminder, this is one of three funding rounds in the New Human Services Partnership. If your agency or group is not a fit for this funding, it’s likely you may be for a future funding round, including the mini-grants (expected this summer) and the High-impact grants (expected this fall/winter).
