MIClassroom Heroes - Change of Address and Stop Payment

The Michigan Department of Treasury has received questions about how school districts and nonprofit nonpublic schools can update address information for eligible teachers and support staff participating in the Teacher and Support Staff COVID-19 (TSSC19) and GSRP, Head Start, Adult Education, and Young Adult Special Education Teacher COVID-19 Grant Program.

School districts and nonprofit nonpublic schools can update the addresses of eligible teachers and support staff through a special TSSC19 Address Update Template provided by the state Treasury Department.  

To update addresses of teacher and support staff: 

  1. Download the TSSC19 Address Update Template 
  2. Complete the information in the Excel spreadsheet. There is a limit of 30 rows. If you have more than 30 address changes, please complete multiple spreadsheets. 
  3. Email the completed TSSC19 Address Update Template to Treas-TSSC19-Technical-Support@Michigan.gov. 
    1. In the subject of the email, please indicate "TSSC19 - Address Update" 
    2. In the body of the email, include the school name, district code for public schools and the building or entity code for nonpublic schools.

The state Treasury Department asks that only one email submission be provided by each school district and nonprofit nonpublic school.
