Fiscal Year 2022 Budget

Last Wednesday, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer signed a budget for the upcoming fiscal year that includes transformational investments in child care, infrastructure, health care and economic development. I applaud my colleagues in the Legislature for passing this budget and Gov. Whitmer for signing it into law.

The fiscal year 2022 budget includes:

  • Over $100 million for clean drinking water initiatives, the Great Lakes, contaminated site cleanups and high-water infrastructure grants.
  • $100 million in new community revitalization grants to redevelop neighborhoods and support small businesses.
  • A 5% increase in funding for universities and community colleges.
  • Funding for professional development training and body cameras for the Michigan State Police.
  • About $2.7 billion in federal relief funds for mortgage assistance and home repairs, water affordability, energy assistance, and transportation.
  • Nearly $200 million for over 100 local bridge projects.
  • Over $50 million for senior care.
  • Funding to support at-risk youth and fight homelessness in Detroit.

I’m pleased that we were able to work across the aisle to ensure that these common-sense priorities receive the support they deserve. This budget promises to improve the lives of Michiganders for generations to come.
