COVID-19 Expenditures - 000-2000-20B

Description of Agency

On March 10, 2020, Governor Gretchen Whitmer declared a state of emergency when the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services identified the first two presumptive positive cases of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) respiratory illness. The Legislature enacted Public Act 66 of 2020 and Public Act 67 of 2020, appropriating supplemental funding for COVID-19. In addition, Section 704 (3), Public Act 53 of 2019 allows the Michigan Department of State Police to receive and expend money from local, State, federal, or private sources for the purpose of supporting emergency preparedness, response, recovery, and mitigation activity. Public Act 67 of 2020 requires the Auditor General to audit the use of the funds appropriated for the COVID-19 emergency and report monthly until the funds are expended. Our report includes COVID-19 expenditures not limited to Public Act 67. This is our second monthly report.
