Governor Whitmer Lowers Cost of Groceries for Millions of Middle-Class Michigan Families

Governor Gretchen Whitmer is launching an initiative to lower grocery costs for middle-class families in Michigan.

Whitmer announced that 1.31 million Michiganders in more than 700,000 households will receive $95 in April to help with grocery bills, which have been on the rise across the country due to inflation

In a statement, Whitmer said that the grocery plan will “ensure that families can thrive and help us build on our economic momentum.”

The measure is part of Whitmer’s larger effort to cut costs for Michigan families. Earlier this month, she delivered a $400 refund to Michigan car, RV, and motorcycle insurance holders. She also recently called for the suspension of Michigan’s gas tax, as well as a pause on the federal gas tax, which could save Michiganders 42 cents per gallon.
