“The University of Michigan continues to lead the nation and the world in groundbreaking health care research to improve outcomes for patients and families,” said Dingell. “With this nearly $10 million in federal grant funding from HHS, the University of Michigan will conduct vital research on a host of critical public health issues. I look forward to continuing to work with the University and HHS to secure additional funding for this important research that will change lives not only in our community and state, but across the country.”

HHS is the largest grant-making agency in the US. Most HHS grants are provided directly to states, territories, tribes, and educational and community organizations, then distributed to eligible individuals and organizations. For more information on HHS grants click here.
