Grants available through program Filler helped create

State Rep. Graham Filler today encouraged business owners throughout mid-Michigan to apply for an afflicted business relief program he helped pass into law.

Filler and the Legislature approved a bipartisan plan last December to create a $409 million relief program for businesses that have struggled the most because of the pandemic. A business’s property taxes, unemployment insurance taxes, license and inspection fees, and decline in sales will factor into the grant amount.

“We created this program to provide real relief to local businesses that really need it after they were forced to shut down for months at the onset of the pandemic,” said Filler, of DeWitt. “Small businesses and the people they employ will always have my support.”

The application for the program will be open until March 31. Local business owners can visit michigan.gov/abr to learn more and apply.
