LANSING, Mich. (AP) - The Michigan Department of Human Services is partnering with Grand Valley State University and the W.K. Kellogg Foundation on a project to measure the impact of a program that puts department workers in nearly 170 schools across the state.

The department announced Thursday that a three-year, more than $1 million grant funded by the W.K. Kellogg Foundation will help examine the Pathways to Potential program that aims to improve safety, health, education and self-sufficiency.

DHS will work with the Dorothy A. Johnson Center for Philanthropy’s Community Research Institute at Grand Valley State University.

Pathways to Potential currently operates in Genesee, Kalamazoo, Lapeer, Macomb, Midland, Muskegon, Newaygo, Oakland, Ogemaw, Roscommon, Saginaw, St. Clair and Wayne counties. The program started in 2012 in Detroit, Flint, Pontiac and Saginaw.
