Good Morning Everyone,
I thought this was a good resource to share with some of our families. There’s a new program that will pay up to $500 in utility costs for Michigan’s essential workers. THAW, or The Heat and Warm Fund, will pay up to $500 in utility assistance for any household with an income up to 250% of the Federal Poverty Level. Following the Department of Homeland Security’s definition of an essential worker, if you’re a health care nurse, hospital cleaning and maintenance worker, grocery and foodservice clerk, or bus driver, you qualify.
Please, let me know if you need assistance reaching out to any of your families or completing the form.
