Announcement: Updates to RAP/CAP Guidelines

Posted: Monday, September 25, 2017

MMRMA established the Risk Avoidance Program (RAP) in 1997 to increase members’ awareness of loss control and to encourage participation and innovation in loss control programs. In 2016, MMRMA added the Certification and Accreditation Program (CAP) to support professional certification and accreditation programs. Combined, the MMRMA grant programs have become a cornerstone for the overall benefits of MMRMA membership.

MMRMA has seen an increase in the number of grant applications submitted over the past few years. As a result, the grant budget became more restrictive and the Membership Committee, which is responsible for reviewing grant applications and allocating funds, began to review the overall program goals and structure. The initial review process included determining how RAP grants aligned with MMRMA’s overall program goals of reducing the frequency and severity of property and casualty losses.

MMRMA’s Board of Directors approved a $500,000 increase in the RAP grant budget for the 2018 fiscal year beginning July 1, 2017. In addition to the budgetary increase, the Membership Committee held a strategic planning session to discuss future program goals, standard grant guidelines, and overall funding limits for various projects.

Please go here for a summary of the RAP changes approved by the Membership Committee at its August 2017 meeting. These changes are effective immediately and will be applied to any and all grant applications going forward. The upcoming October 2017 Risk Journal will also include an article with details about these changes.

If you have any questions regarding the outlined program adjustments, RAP/CAP grants in general, or any other risk control issue, please contact Cara Kowal, Manager of Risk Management Services, at 734-513-0300 or
