The Michigan Public Service Commission (MPSC) today designated "Michigan 2-1-1" as the statewide 2-1-1 coordinating agency from April 1, 2008 to March 31, 2009.
The Commission also directed "Michigan 2-1-1" to present the Commission with current information on funding, advances made in 2-1-1 availability in Michigan and any other relevant information on its progress. That report is due by Feb. 1, 2009.
Today's designation marks the third and final year of a three-year renewal process. The Commission will determine whether another three-year designation should be authorized after "Michigan 2-1-1" submits its report next year.
In today's order, the MPSC also noted its continued concern over uncertain funding commitments for 2-1-1 service in the future.
The abbreviated dialing number 2-1-1 has been designated by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to enable callers to reach community resource and referral answering points.
The MPSC is an agency within the Department of Labor & Economic Growth.
