MDHHS seeking proposals for student internship stipend program to enhance behavioral health workforce
LANSING, Mich. - As part of the state's continuing commitment to improving access to behavioral health services for Michigan's families, the Michigan Department of Technology, Management & Budget (DTMB) has issued a request for proposal (RFP) on behalf of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) to establish a program that will provide stipends for student interns in Michigan's public behavioral health system.
The Internship Stipend Program seeks to increase the availability of behavioral health services across the State of Michigan by incentivizing internship opportunities for college students. People will be eligible for stipends if they are working toward behavioral health credentials from an accredited program and interning at approved sites in Michigan.
Organizations with expertise in or experience with internship programs or Michigan's behavioral health care organizations are encouraged to bid on this RFP.
The submission date for this RFP is 1:50 p.m., Thursday, Nov. 30. Proposals must be submitted electronically through the SIGMA Vendor Self-Service (VSS) system. To bid on solicitations, vendors must first be registered with SIGMA VSS. There is no charge to register.
For additional information on how to register and obtain a VSS account to bid on open solicitations, please visit DTMB - How to Register as a Vendor (michigan.gov). The program period tentatively begins the first quarter of 2024.
DTMB anticipates issuing one award. DTMB reserves the right to change mandatory minimum requirements, dates or any other information deemed necessary.
