$300M AVAILABLE FOR MICHIGAN FIRST RESPONDER GRANTS

$300M AVAILABLE FOR MICHIGAN FIRST RESPONDER GRANTS

Recently, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed Public Act 123 of 2020, which appropriated $100 million for the First Responder Hazard Pay Premiums Program and $200 million for the Public Safety and Public Health Payroll Reimbursement Program. Both programs will be funded through the CARES Act.

First Responder Hazard Pay Premiums Program
Offers $100 million to fund additional compensation for first responders. To be eligible, first responders must have performed hazardous duty or work involving physical hardship related to COVID-19.

Cities, villages, townships, counties, public airport operators and certain ambulance operators can be reimbursed up to $1,000 per eligible employee with a max of $5 million for a single applicant. We advise local units to investigate this program as soon as possible as applications from qualifying units of government will be funded on a first-come, first-served basis.

Public Safety and Public Health Payroll Reimbursement Program
$200 million has been made available through the Public Safety and Public Health Payroll Reimbursement Program to reimburse cities, villages, townships and counties for eligible public safety and public health payroll expenditures incurred from April 2020 to July 2020. Cities, villages, townships, and counties can participate in the program if they have eligible public safety and public health payroll expenditures.

This program is expected to have two application rounds.

The first will be available for reimbursement of April and May 2020 eligible payroll expenditures. If funding is available after the first application round is completed, a second application round will be available for reimbursement of the June and July 2020 eligible payroll expenditures. The application period for round one ends on July 17, 2020.

Applications for the programs and more information are available on the Treasury COVID-19 webpage under Local Government and School Services.
