LANSING, Mich., Dec. 17, 2021 — Yesterday, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer awarded over $1 million to 41 small businesses in 28 communities across the state as part of the Michigan Economic Development Corp.’s Match on Main grant program. The program aims to support small, local businesses to create resiliency and strengthen downtowns while ensuring continued job growth in the state. Saginaw business Gee’Ques LLC is among the recipients of the $25,000 grants. State Rep. Amos O’Neal (D-Saginaw) issued the following statement celebrating the award:

“Small businesses are the lifeblood of our community. They provide vital goods and services to our residents and create new jobs. More than that, small businesses are what make each city and community unique. I’m so pleased that the governor and the MEDC are lending their support to small businesses throughout the state and right here in Saginaw. Simply put, without our small businesses, Saginaw wouldn’t be the great city that it is today. Congratulations to Gee’Ques!”
