Biden Administration Investment Brings Nearly $130 Million Dollars to 61st State House District, Macomb County

MOUNT CLEMENS, Mich. – Investments from the Biden Administration will bring nearly $129,839,135 to the 61st State House District according to data gathered by Progress Michigan, a statewide progressive advocacy organization. The funding will be used for public health and safety and comes from the American Rescue Plan Act, helping to improve the quality of life for Michiganders who live, work, and play in the area.  

“The funding from the Biden administration highlights the importance of investing in public infrastructure and safety,” said Representative Denise Mentzer. “This has been a priority of mine in the state legislature. Getting support from the federal government has helped immensely. This $130 million investment will have transformative impacts – improving critical infrastructure, creating jobs, stimulating economic growth, and enhancing the safety and well-being of our community members.”

“There are a lot of exciting projects being worked on and critical programs funded thanks to major investment from the Biden administration. We’re talking tens of billions of dollars for Michigan” said Sam Inglot, executive director of Progress Michigan. “But when you’re talking about numbers that large, it can be hard for anyone to wrap their head around what that actually means for their community. That’s what we sought to address with, you can actually see where that money is going and easily understand how communities across Michigan are benefiting.”
