Economic Recovery Resources

In the spring of 2020, the State of Michigan issued orders to temporarily restrict in-person work, travel, and gatherings in public places in order to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and to protect public safety. Michigan was one of many states to do so. As a result, significant economic disruption occurred throughout Northwest Lower Michigan that affected businesses, families, and local units of government. This page provides an overview of some of the economic impact associated with the government’s response to COVID-19.



Our Township greatly benefits from Network Northwest's experience, depth of knowledge and understanding. Because they work with so many diverse communities in our ten-county region they understand the local land-use issues and are already working on solutions by the time we realize we need some help.
