Late last year the Michigan Legislature passed, and the Governor signed a bill that allocated $45 million to individuals who have been negatively impacted by the State’s “Gathering and Face Mask Order” that shut down many businesses in certain industries and went into effect on November 18, 2020. The money will be made available in the form of grants up to $1,650 per person.
Applications will begin to be accepted on Friday, January 15th at 9:00 am.
Everything your former employees or people you know that might be interested need to know about the grants including eligibility, where to find the grant applications and what information applicants will need to file an application can be found here.
These grants are NOT first come first serve, the awards are taxable but, will not affect an individual’s unemployment compensation.
