Pandemic relief funds both 'proactive, reactive' to address Midland … – Midland Daily News

A majority of federal relief funds for Midland County nonprofits support food and housing access in addition to pandemic recovery and mental health initiatives.
Sharon Mortensen, Midland Area Community Foundation President, said the American Rescue Plan Act funds will transform the county in the long-term. 
“We had grants that were both reactive and proactive,” she said. “We looked at the impact of the pandemic … equity, transformation, sustainability, leverage, efficacy, implementation and direct client impact in Midland County.”
Mortensen provided an update on the funding to the Midland County Board of Commissioners on Tuesday at the County Services Building. The County of Midland has an agreement with the foundation regarding the federal relief. No formal business was taken Tuesday regarding the funds.
According to Mortensen, the federal support “intentionally” addresses several areas of need across the county.
