Biden Administration Investment Brings Nearly 6 Million Dollars to Monroe County

MONROE, Mich. – Investments from the Biden Administration will bring $5,968,807 to Monroe County according to data gathered by Progress Michigan, a statewide progressive advocacy organization. The funding will be used for several environmental improvement projects and comes from the American Rescue Plan, improving the quality of life for Michiganders who live, work, and play in the area.  

“I was very excited to learn of the funding Monroe County will be receiving for environmental and infrastructure projects from the federal government,” said Representative Reggie Miller. “Reinvesting in our district’s infrastructure helps everyone and this investment will do just that.”

“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.”
