​Oakland County Executive David Coulter is holding a news conference to announce the non-profit organizations who will receive grants of nearly $10 million from the county’s allocation of CARES Act funds. Non-profits are important part of the community fabric and these grants are intended to help them continue to provide services to residents of Oakland County and implement COVID-19 related safety protocols. Together the grantees serve half a million residents. The United Way for Southeastern Michigan administered the competitive application process, evaluated all applications, made recommendations to the county and will now administer the distribution of the funds.
