Gov. Whitmer today announced the MI Mask Aid program, a partnership with the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services (MDHHS), Ford Motor Company, and Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), to provide 4 million free masks to Michigan residents most vulnerable to COVID-19.

This program is part of the Mask Up Michigan campaign and will support low-income residents, seniors, homeless shelters, and schools in need of this critical PPE.

The state has already sent 1.5 million masks from FEMA to statewide organizations serving low-income residents and other support agencies. An additional 1 million masks from FEMA and 1.5 million masks from Ford will go to low-income schools, testing sites, and other statewide organizations reaching vulnerable populations including minority residents who have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19.

Those interested in receiving a mask can locate a distribution site by calling the COVID-19 Hotline at 888-535-6136 or find their local Community Action Agency online.
