This guide provides information on how to access programs aimed at supporting Michiganders during the coronavirus outbreak. The programs in this guide are supported by the state and federal government, private companies, and nonprofits that serve the majority of Michigan residents, plus there is a special section for programs serving Detroit residents. This guide is not able to provide information on the numerous local assistance programs available in various communities.

The coronavirus outbreak and responses are evolving quickly, and this guide will continue to be updated. Additions and corrections can be emailed to University of Michigan Poverty Solutions Communications Specialist Lauren Slagter at lslag@umich.edu. Special thanks to student research assistants Kelly Christopherson and Ketan Revankar for helping compile this guide and to Zixi Li for the design.
