COVID-19 Financial Considerations

  • The State of Michigan has faced significant economic disruptions and financial impact on the budget due to the COVID-19 outbreak. State officials are actively working to determine the financial impact of the crisis and to navigate the numerous funding sources, including state and federal stimulus funding, that will aid in the response and recovery efforts. 

    This page provides insights and transparency into these appropriations, along with state expenditures and outcomes. We recommend that you continue to check back as additional information is added.

Total Federal and State COVID-19 Funding Allocations

  • This diagram represents all federal and state funding available to support the response and recovery efforts to COVID-19.  The funding listed for each Michigan Department (first column from right) is grant funding available to each Michigan Department, either by application process or automatic distribution (totaling $4.75B). This amount does not include funding tied to congressional action, that passed through federal agencies directly to Michigan medical providers, nonprofits, tribes, businesses, community organizations, airports, local governments and other organizations other than State of Michigan departments and agencies (totaling $9.6B). It also does not include uncapped FEMA funding.

    Federal legislation and funding are rapidly evolving, we will keep the visualization as up-to-date as possible, but there may be times when the visualization does not reflect the latest information. This diagram is a reflection of the most recent funds that are available for the State of Michigan and will not agree to the actual expenditures to date on the dashboard below.

    *Federal Funds Information for States (FFIS), an organization founded on behalf of the National Governors Association and the National Conference of State Legislatures, “helps states manage their federal funds by analyzing the impact of federal actions on states”.

    As part of this objective, FFIS produces state-by-state budget estimates of congressional actions and changes in grant funding. This weekly report is modeled in the visualization below, which depicts funding tied to congressional action, passing through federal agencies, which then issue grants to various State of Michigan departments and agencies.
