Governor Whitmer Forms Anti-Poverty Task Force

We applaud Governor Whitmer’s leadership in establishing the Michigan Poverty Task Force to fully leverage state government’s efforts and resources in fighting against poverty. In the Executive Order, the Governor prominently references the ALICE Report stating that, “…too many Michiganders lack the opportunity they deserve to get ahead, or even get by”.   The Poverty Taskforce will help unite efforts to create more opportunities for ALICE households which will benefit all Michigan residents and communities. Listen to Mike Larson’s interview with Michigan Business Network about the Poverty Taskforce here.
