Grants for some individuals



For any of our members/veterans that might be eligible. Email from the Michigan Executive Office.

Applications Open Friday for Employee Assistance Grants up to $1,650

I am proud to announce that applications will open tomorrow for the Employee Assistance Grants that I signed into law on December 30. This grant program puts dollars in the pockets of Michiganders who work in hospitality, entertainment, recreation, accommodation, and food services sectors -- as well as the gym and fitness sectors. This grant program helps offset some of the financial losses workers may have incurred due to a furlough, layoff or job loss, or a reduction of hours. Eligible individuals can apply for one-time grants of up to $1650.

The application period will open tomorrow January 15, 2021 at 9:00 a.m. and will be available until January 25, 2021 at 5:00 p.m. Eligible Michiganders can apply here: https://www.mrlaef.org/money. Applications will be processed through February, and payments will be issued in March.
