About this grant

The Michigan Unemployment Insurance Project recruits and trains law students to provide free assistance to unemployed workers who are filing unemployment claims and to those whose claims for unemployment benefits have been denied. By assisting these individuals in obtaining unemployment insurance benefits, the grantee helps struggling families, stressed communities, and Michigan’s economy. This grant increase will support the grantee’s expansion into Genesee and Ingham counties.
