“The workers on the frontlines of our response to the COVID-19 pandemic continue to clock-in day after day to ensure our state can move forward with our new reality in the face of incredibly challenging circumstances. A future for Michigan wouldn’t be possible without their selflessness, dedication and sacrifice, and it’s long past time to step up. We need to ensure our frontliners have an opportunity to build a future for themselves once we’re on the other side of this crisis. I’m proud to support this program, and look forward to seeing the great things these hardworking Michiganders will continue to accomplish down the road.”

State Rep. Padma Kuppa (D-Troy) is one of several Legislative Champions of the Futures for Frontliners Program, a scholarship program allowing eligible frontline workers of the COVID-19 pandemic to attend community college tuition-free or complete a high school diploma.
