LANSING, Mich., Sept. 22, 2021 — The Michigan House of Representatives passed a budget that includes historic investments in the economy, child care and infrastructure. Included in the budget is $1.5 million allocated to the Wayne Metro Community Action Agency Home Repair Program, which assists low-income homeowners with their home repairs. State Rep. Mary Cavanagh (D-Redford Township) issued the following statement in support of the budget:


“Our community will emerge stronger, more resilient and more equitable thanks to the passage of this budget. I’m especially proud of the work we did to secure $1.5 million in funding for the Wayne Metro Community Action Agency Home Repair Program. We also secured important funding for infrastructure, higher education and our frontline workers, but, most importantly, we’ve invested nearly $1.5 billion for child care expansion and accessibility. Thanks to this funding, more than 100,000 children across the state will be eligible for the Child Development and Care program, which provides subsidized child care to low-income families. With this budget, we have made it clear that our children are our top priority.”
