Mid-Michigan housing projects are set to receive $1.2 million in federal grants to help keep families and seniors impacted by the pandemic housed.

The funding will go to housing commissions in Bay City, Saginaw, and Flint, among others.

Congressman Kildee said the funding is intended to reduce uncertainty during the crisis.

“The housing support is intended to strengthen the housing sector, keep people in their housing, especially in public housing, and keep them from being in a position where they not only have to fight COVID-19 but struggle to find affordable housing.”

The state has a moratorium on evictions through May 15th.
