Futures for Frontliners does many things at once: It spends federal C.A.R.E.S. Act funding; it shores up falling community college enrollments; it contributes to the state’s 2030 pledge to have 60 percent of the workforce with a secondary degree/certificate; and most important, it gives tangible appreciation and opportunity to those who continued to work face to face with us through the scary first days of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Investing in Michiganders is a smart, audacious move, and we commend Gov. Gretchen Whitmer and her team.
