CITY OF YPSILANTI COVID ASSISTANCE CARE PACKAGES NOW AVAILABLE TO RESIDENTS BY ONLINE APPLICATION. YPSILANTI, Michigan - On May 5th, City Council approved a new program aimed at providing COVID Assistance Care Packages to city residents after staff identified the City of Ypsilanti is eligible for an allocation of $44,937 of Coronavirus Emergency Supplemental Funding administered by the Department of Justice.
These care packages include
3oz bottles of hand sanitizer,
3oz bottles of cleaning disinfectant,
1 cloth reusable face mask for each member of eligible households in the City,
2 rolls of paper towel, and
2 rolls of toilet paper.
Included in each care package will be detailed instructions on the items received and their proper use, including wearing and washing your cloth facemask. Each cloth facemask was produced locally in partnership with Engage EMU. The EMU PPE Project was launched in mid-March 2020 with a request from administrators of St. Joseph Mercy Hospital in Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti for fabric masks to help protect employees working on non-COVID-19 units. That initial request led to the development of a more comprehensive PPE project which utilized the key assets of EMU (students, faculty, and equipment) in collaboration with community organizations and businesses. The material and design of the masks have been approved by St. Joes Health System for their non-medical staff and the high quality of the quilted material is more durable than cotton and reusable. 500 out of the 2500 ordered for COVID Assistance Care Packages to city residents will be made for children.
The plan is to utilize existing distribution channels such as Ypsilanti Community Schools at Parkridge and the management staff at facilities such as Chidester Place and Town Center Place who have communicated the need for these kind of supplies for their residents. City staff has been quickly assembling the care packages over the last couple weeks since the plan was approved and there is now an application online where residents can go to sign up and receive a COVID Assistance Care Package for contactless pickup at City Hall while supplies last. Staff will verify City resident status by address and leave the bag in the foyer with a name attached and time of pickup. Information about Washtenaw County Barrier Busters is included in every care package for residents that might need rent, utility, or mortgage assistance. Apply for the care package here: cityofypsilanti.com/FormCenter/Main-Forms-10/COVID-Assistance-Care-Packages-Applicati-78

We love organizing with Desiraé Simmons in the Huron Valley because she understands common sense principles like this: housing is a human right.

Contact Governor Whitmer and our Michigan legislators to let them you know you understand this, too. Tell them to extend the ban on evictions and suspend rent, mortgage, and land contract payments.
