Washtenaw County continues to assess flood damage throughout the county and provide resources and information to its residents. The Governor has added Washtenaw County to the State of Michigan’s Emergency Declaration due to the widespread flooding and damage. For the most up to date emergency information please visit our Emergency Management page.
This declaration means that the County and its residents have access to additional resources from the State.
The Board of Commissioners have allocated $500,000 to support initial recovery efforts. This allocation is meant to provide flexible bridge support to impacted residents, such as housing, meals, basic clean-up and repair services until more resources are made available through the state and federal government.
Several resources are available to support residents, including the following:
