Many reentry organizations are taking precautions and operating at a reduced capacity, therefore resources are more limited at this time. Online community meetings have addressed new and exacerbated challenges faced by returning citizens during this pandemic. Accessing and affording basic necessities under Governor Whitmer’s stay-at-home order, is not feasible for everyone. It’s so important that we stay safe and look out for public health right now, but the financial burdens for returning citizens are real.
100% of these funds will go to returning citizens across the state of Michigan who have lost income and/or are seeing increased living costs due to work and school stoppage due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This is emergency funding to help formerly incarcerated people in need with their rent, food, utilities, and medical needs. The amount given to each person is determined based on how much we raise, how much clients have lost, and how many people apply.
We will send funds to the recipient’s mailing address or via online payment. If you are a returning citizen in need of funds, Click Here to apply for support.
