    A new resource guide developed by the University of Michigan’s Youth Policy Lab offers timely information for Michigan nonprofits providing emergency response services as a result of COVID-19.

    To support nonprofits who have stepped up to respond to this national emergency, the federal government recently authorized the Federal Emergency Management Agency to provide funding under its public assistance program to help nonprofit organizations recoup some of the increased costs they’re incurring as a result of emergency response efforts.

    “Nonprofits are busy keeping people safe, alive and fed right now, and many aren’t able to devote the substantial energy and time required to digest these dense, federal regulations,” said Andrea Plevek, executive director of the Youth Policy Lab.

    In close partnership with several other research centers at the Ford School, the Youth Policy Lab has launched the COVID-19 Consultant Corps to help respond to requests for assistance from public and nonprofit sector partners throughout Michigan.
