Advancing Macomb seeks slice of federal American Rescue Plan funds

Posted March 24, 2023

The funds would be used to help Macomb County to catch up to the rest of southeastern Michigan in the amount of dollars nonprofit organizations receive from local, regional and national foundations, Banks said.
