MI Mask Aid

Millions of free masks for Michiganders

MI Mask Aid is an initiative of the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS) and the Michigan Community Service Commission to deliver free face masks to Michiganders so they can protect themselves and their communities from COVID-19. MI Mask Aid is supported by generous donations from corporate and nonprofit partners, as well as supplies provided by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). This initiative was developed in conjunction with Gov. Whitmer’s Michigan Coronavirus Task Force on Racial Disparities chaired by Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist II.

The goal of MI Mask Aid is to ensure that all residents have a face mask, and that cost and availability of masks are not a barrier. Any member of the public who needs a mask can receive one through this program. However, the program is particularly focused on distributing masks to vulnerable populations like low-income residents, seniors, high-risk families, children returning to school in person, and people living in homeless shelters.

For more information, read the press release about MI Mask Aid.
