Governor Announces Funding Priorities

Due to a mix of federal COVID-19 relief funding, and higher than previously estimated state revenue, there is a surplus of funds available to the state. At the end of last week, Governor Whitmer laid out her priorities for those dollars, focusing on K-12 education. The items she’s looking to fund include:

  • $500 million for school infrastructure
  • $500 million for districts to hire and retain more teachers, psychologists, social workers, counselors, and nurses, and provide student loan debt relief for mental and physical health professionals working in high-need districts
  • $402 million to increase the foundation allowance by 4%

The governor will have to work with the legislature to negotiate how the additional revenue is appropriated. For more details on the governor’s priorities, please click here.
