What We Do
Access to food and proper nutrition are two issues of vital importance to Michigan seniors. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is designed to provide seniors with assistance in purchasing food from local grocery stores, supermarkets, and farmers markets to ensure that they have access to a healthy diet using the Michigan Bridge Card. The MiCAFE Network assists seniors in applying for SNAP benefits as well as assisting in annual recertification for existing SNAP recipients.
Medical and Insurance
Medicare, Medicaid, and other programs address unique needs for seniors when it comes to their medical issues and insurance coverage. Programs like the Medicare Savings Program, Medicare Extra Help Part D, and Medicaid ensure that low-income seniors can afford their medical care and prescription drugs. The MiCAFE Network assists seniors in applying for these important benefits.
Utility Assistance and Tax Credits
Housing related costs represent the largest cost of living for most seniors. There are many programs that can help seniors save money including the Homestead Property Tax Credit, Home Heating Credit, and State Emergency Relief (SER)program, which helps with many emergency needs such as heat and utilities and home repairs. The MiCAFE Network assists seniors to apply for, or connect with, these important resources and other community programs.
