I don't know of any direct DGN-to-GRASS translators. What you should do 
is go back to the source of your DGN files and ask them to save them as 
DXF instead. Alternatively, if they have Intergraph's MGE software as 
well, they may be able to write in a variety of other formats, such as 
DLG, or ASCII (using MGE ASCII Loader). You must understand that 
MicroStation is a serious CAD package, and the DGN data structure 
reflects a number of data elements that simply are not available in 
GRASS vector format; thus, writing a translator becomes a very involved
