Those payments are designed to help Americans weather this storm and support their communities.

But just how much is Michigan going to receive from this particular provision? How big of a cash influx should the residents of each county expect?

Michigan Responds

A spotlight on the institutions, organizations and people serving the residents of Michigan and beyond

Our higher education clients and partners are rising to the challenge, including the state’s Research 1 institutions that are seeking creative solutions coordinated through the University Research Corridor (URC).
