The state has released grant money up to $10,000 per small business (that’s you) for Covid related purchases. The money for these grants come from Michigan’s portion of the federal CARES act.
Examples of how grant funding may be utilized:
- Purchasing engineering controls and other supplies/materials such as sneeze guards, physical barriers, face coverings and hand washing/hygiene stations.
- Purchasing Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) including gowns, gloves and eye protection.
- Training to educate employees about the spread and dangers of COVID-19.
To apply, businesses may complete the Michigan COVID-19 Safety Grant application.
Grants are provided through recent passage of SB 690 appropriation of federal CARES Act funding and will be awarded until grant funding is expended. This is a reimbursement program. Grant awards are limited to one per company.

Healthy worker app
I’d also like to remind you of the healthy worker app that Sarah has created. We use it ourselves to record the information that all workers must be asked prior to starting the days work. Temperature, exposure to covid, symptoms, etc. Sarah has customized this app for many of our clients with their specific questions, notifications, alerts, and branding. It’s a simple form that can be accessed from any mobile phone (or computer) web browser. Please contact Sarah if you need to get setup. firstname.lastname@example.org
