(WXYZ) — U.S. Senators Debbie Stabenow and Gary Peters announced $53,823,765 in funding to help local governments in Southeast Michigan respond to the COVID-19 outbreak.

The funding was included in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act that was signed into law on March 27.

“Local governments are on the front lines of this battle. This funding will give them additional resources to respond to this unprecedented threat. Communities can use these funds to meet the unique and growing needs of their communities with things like assistance to businesses, job training for health care workers, shelter for homeless people, testing, equipment and supplies,“ Stabenow said in a press release.

SE Michigan governments will receive about $37.5 million through community development block grants for activities that prevent and respond to the spread of COVID-19; $15 million through emergency solutions grants to reduce the spread of COVID-19 among the homeless population and $549,137 through the Housing Opportunities for Persons with AIDS program.

The state of Michigan will also receive an additional $38 million for distribution to other local communities in the state.
