FEMA has announced $200 million in supplemental funding from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act, including $40,519 for Shiawassee County. The funding is being allocated to local jurisdictions across the country to supplement local service organizations that provide critical resources to people with economic emergencies, which include hungry and homeless populations.
Congressman John Moolenaar (R-Midland) made the following statement regarding the supplemental funding announcement:
“This funding will help take care of vulnerable people in mid and northern Michigan,” said Congressman Moolenaar, who voted for the CARES Act in March. “The crisis has increased food and shelter concerns for many people in our state, and this will help address those issues with funding for local organizations that know our communities well.”
Clinton County will receive $34,799, Gratiot County will receive $22,554 and Saginaw County will receive $119,234.
