Our legislative team shared details of the Pure Michigan Small Business Relief Initiative grants, which went live on Dec. 15. The Michigan Municipal League Foundation has been notified of its selection as the program administrator. The program will provide $10 million in grants to support small businesses disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 crisis and the recent DHHS epidemic orders. Our legislative team also covered the latest developments during Lame Duck, potential changes to the Open Meetings Act, the status of a new federal coronavirus stimulus package, and more.
