ARPA Local Government Finance – Michigan Effects Noon
The federal stimulus extends $1.9 trillion nationally for COVID-19 relief and economic recovery efforts. Approximately $4.4 billion is earmarked for Michigan’s state government, counties, cities and tribal governments, and predicted to support 43,000 jobs and annual labor earnings of nearly $3.6 million. This is a virtual event, on Zoom, and links will be forwarded on Monday, May 17, 2021 by email to those who register. Please note our May Public Policy Forum is on a Tuesday. How are local governments expected to spend pandemic-relief funds and what community-building effects are anticipated? Our panelists include economists and guest speakers from community frontlines.
