As the state of Michigan could receive as much as $10 billion from the Biden administration stimulus package, officials are planning how to allocate the resources in the best way. “It’s hard to exaggerate how big of a deal it is,” Brideg Michigan quotes Stephanie Leiser, who leads the Local Fiscal Health Project at the Center for Local, State, and Urban Policy.

“I’ve heard it compared to the New Deal, and I think this is a good way for communities to kind of frame this, as a really big injection of resources, and probably not one they’re likely to get again for a long time.”
