COVID Hardship Fund for Michigan Nurses

Angie SzumlinskiNews

Nurses and other healthcare professionals have faced incredible challenges during this pandemic. So many of us have made so many sacrifices, financial, physical emotional and more. To help with the financial burden, the Michigan Nurses Foundation established a COVID Hardship Fund for Michigan Nurses Association members. The fund has served nurses and other health care professionals who are MNA members in good standing through two COVID hardship grants available (members can apply for one grant):

  • $500 to make up for decreased income from reduced hours or
  • Up to $500 to pay for unreimbursed relocation expenses

The fund is possible due to the generous support of the Michigan Nurses Association plus community donations. For more information go to

Thank you to all healthcare heroes for the dedication, hard work and steadfastness you have shown over the past 4 months. Stay well, stay safe and stay tuned!
