Michigan workers impacted by latest lockdowns can apply for money from state

Michiganders who lost wages, hours, or their jobs because of state COVID-19 health and safety orders issued in November can start applying for new grant funding Friday, January 15th. The Michigan Restaurant and Lodging Association recently made an announcement about the $45 million in cash available as part of a bigger pandemic relief bill passed by the Michigan Legislature last year. 

The measure allows for a one-time grant of up to $1,650 for Michigan residents employed in specific industries who successfully complete an application. 

Who is eligible?

    • MI residents who lost wages, hours, or their job due to the Nov. shutdown orders - You might remember that those orders instituted a ban on indoor dining at bars and restaurants while completely shuttering venues such as casinos, bowling alleys, and movie theaters.


  • People working in these specific industries as eligible: 


    • Bars 
    • Banquet halls 
    • Bowling alleys 
    • Cafeterias 
    • Casinos 
    • Caterers 
    • Food trucks 
    • Golf courses 
    • Hotels, motels, bed & breakfast, resorts 
    • Nightclubs 
    • Restaurants 
    • Theaters 
    • And other such recreational facilities
