LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Unemployed people who find a job would get $1,000 as part of $7.9 billion in proposed COVID-19 relief spending advancing in the Michigan Legislature.
The “return to work” grants would cover up to 400,000 residents.
They are included in supplemental budget bills that advanced from the Republican-led House Appropriations Committee on Wednesday but are a ways off from being enacted since there is no deal with Democratic Gov. Gretchen Whitmer.
All but $1 billion in funding would come from federal coronavirus packages that were approved in March and December.
