State Stimulus Package Delivers Grants for Michigan Business Owners

Gov. Gretchen Whitmer recently signed a bipartisan relief bill, which includes $55 million to help small businesses, into law. The assistance is available in addition to a federal $900 billion relief package.

The package includes the following:

  • Grants of up to $20,000 for businesses either fully or partially closed because of state health orders.
  • Grants of up to $40,000 for entertainment venues.
  • $45 million in payments to workers who have been laid off or furloughed as a result of the virus.

In addition to the benefits listed above, the state stimulus package includes funding for other COVID-19 response activities, including testing, vaccine distribution, mobile response initiatives, hazard pay for direct care workers and teachers, and more.
