(Monday - March 15, 2021) - Dickinson County will receive nearly five million dollars ($4,938,613) under the provisions of the Covid-19 emergency funding act signed into law last week by President Biden.

In total, Upper Peninsula counties will receive in excess of 56 million dollars.

The largest grant will go to the U.P.'s largest county, Marquette, with $13,051,253. The smallest of the grants will go to Keweenaw County, $414,046
Menominee County will receive $4,457,451, and Iron County, $2,165,327.

The problem at this point is that nobody is exactly sure how the counties will be able to use the money.

It is intended to help replace revenue lost during the Coronavirus Pandemic.
