Northeast Michigan residents are facing unprecedented challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

In order to respond to the immediate needs of Northeast Michigan residents, NEMCSA is implementing our C.A.R.E.S. Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Services. This program is being funded through the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

Efforts will be focused on filling in the gaps that exist between the services we currently offer and the dedicated to CARES funding. We want to offer our families the support they will need as we integrate back into a new normal, while understanding the stresses that were created during this time.
