Gov. Whitmer wants to use $1.4B of federal COVID-19 relief funds to expand health access & build facilities.

LANSING, Mich. (AP) — Gov. Gretchen Whitmer has proposed spending $1.4 billion in federal pandemic funding to expand health care and infrastructure, including to bolster access to mental health services, replace state psychiatric hospitals and build a new public health lab.

The proposal, if approved by the Republican-led Legislature, would account for more than a fifth of Michigan’s $6.5 billion in discretionary rescue funding approved by Congress and President Joe Biden.

Gov. Whitmer wants $335 million in grants to improve access to treatments for autism, behavioral health and substance abuse.
