LANSING – In beginning my research on the state budget, I stumbled upon budget supplement, Senate Substitute Bill 4410, sponsored by House Appropriations Chair Thomas Albert (R)
In the appropriation summary, The Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS) will give of $160,000,000 to hospitals in COVID-19 grants. An additional $1,000,000 will be paid out to long-term care facility supports. Can you smell another lock down? I sure can!
This bill also mentions monies for financially distressed cities, villages, or townships, to award no more than $2M. Anyone requesting this money also received a coronavirus relief local government grant in 2020.
Sec. 305. The funds in part 1 for coronavirus relief local government grants reimbursement shall be used to make payments to cities, villages, townships, and counties that received a coronavirus relief local government grant in 2020 PA 144 and subsequently returned at least some portion of the grant.
