Michigan COVID-19 Pandemic Resource Guide from UM Poverty Solutions

A new Michigan COVID-19 Pandemic Resource Guide provides information on how to access various resources, aimed at supporting Michiganders through the coronavirus pandemic and related economic slowdown. Poverty Solutions,  a U-M initiative aimed at preventing and alleviating poverty, compiled the Michigan COVID-19 Pandemic Resource Guide to help people make sense of the new resources becoming available as a result of the rapidly changing federal, state and local responses to the COVID-19 outbreak. The programs in this guide are supported by the state and federal government, private companies, and nonprofits that serve the majority of Michigan residents, plus there is a special section for programs serving Detroit residents and links to local resources in other areas of the state. The COVID-19 outbreak and responses are evolving quickly, and this guide will continue to be updated by Poverty Solutions.
