Michigan Hospitality Workers To Receive Payments From State's Employee Assistance Grant Program

(CBS DETROIT) – Hospitality workers in Michigan began receiving payments from the state's employee assistance grant program.

Nearly 56,000 hotel and restaurant workers received payments of nearly $800.

Employees who lost wages or their jobs during the pandemic were able to apply for the grant in January.

The program was a part of a $45 million bipartisan deal signed by Governor Gretchen Whitmer last December.
