Michigan is receiving over $37 million dollars in federal funding to address emerging contaminants, like PFAS, in drinking water

The funding will be available to "small” or “disadvantaged” Michigan communities in the form of grants, that will support household contaminant testing and cleanup.

Michigan Congressional representatives are applauding the initiative.

A state official says the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy is working on a draft plan on how the funds will be distributed.

The plan is due in April. It will need to be approved by the EPA before the state can release grant criteria and applications.
