The Federal Correctional Institution, Milan (FCI Milan) is a U.S. federal prison in York Charter Township, Michigan, near Milan. It is operated by the Federal Bureau of Prisons.

This prison is a low-security facility for male inmates. Its adjacent Federal Detention Center houses pretrial and holdover inmates. The institution covers approximately 332 acres and consists of 59 buildings with a total gross floor area of 504,200 sq ft.

FCI Milan covers 300 acres and offers a Residential Drug Abuse Program (RDAP), which offers inmates completing its 500-hour residential program up to a 12-month sentence reduction and up to six months in a halfway house. There are very strict guidelines for admission due to the program's popularity.

The Life Connections Program (LCP) is an 18-month residential voluntary multi-faith restorative justice program which is offered in only four other federal prisons. The program is designed to reduce recidivism and bring reconciliation to the victim, community, and inmate through personal transformation using the participant's faith commitment.

FCI Milan offers a unique program in federal prisons in conjunction with Milan High School where inmates can earn a high school diploma. Milan is the only federal prison which has a high school diploma program.

FCI Milan was activated on April 6, 1933, as a "Federal Detention Farm" and has undergone mission changes throughout its history. FCI Milan held female inmates from 1933 to 1939, housed offenders sentenced under the Federal Youth Corrections Act of 1950, and was once a medium-security institution. The only federal execution in Michigan occurred on July 8, 1938, when Anthony Chebatoris was hanged for the murder of Henry Porter, a truck driver from Bay City, whom Chebatoris mistook for a police officer during a bank robbery.

Famous inmates include Vicente Zambada-Niebla, of the notorious Sinaloa Cartel importing tons of cocaine from Mexico to the USS and thousands of murders, Jeremy Hammond - computer hacker with a 10-year sentence, Oliver Schmidt sentenced to 7-years as the mastermind behind the Volkswagon scandal, Helen Gillis and Evelyn Frechette, the wives of notorious bank robbers Baby Face Nelson and John Dillinger, served one-year sentences at FCI Milan in the mid-1930s after being convicted of aiding their husbands as they evaded authorities.
