Fenton, MI, a city in Genesee County, suffered significant losses in terms of the human cost of the pandemic. Genesee County registered around 56 thousand cases of coronavirus since the start of the pandemic and accounted for around 1100 deaths. The number of cases hit a peak in November 2020, April 2020, and the numbers were steadily rising as of the time of writing in November 2021.
Economically, the city was affected to a great degree due to businesses shutting down and employment opportunities dwindling with each failed venture. In some areas of the city, almost 20% or more of the workforce was rendered newly unemployed. Overall, according to BestNeighborhood.org, the economic impact to Fenton was severe, with 9.6% of jobs at risk. The website also says that, by economic damage, Fenton, MI ranks in the top third of the cities classified as mid-sized by population. The manufacturing, construction, and leisure & hospitality businesses were deemed to be the most at risk.
To help those struggling with the sudden loss in business, Fenton, which bills itself as a business-friendly community, made available resources to help businesses get the help they need to weather the economic hardship brought on by the pandemic. As a part of its COVID-19 response, the Fenton city website listed all the grants, loans, and funding opportunities that were made available by the state of Michigan.
Governor Whitmer signed an agreement between Michigan and the U.S. Department of Labor under the federal CARES act to expand unemployment benefits to workers who do not already qualify for state unemployment insurance. This includes workers who are self-employed, 1099-independent contractors, gig economy workers, and low-wage workers who can no longer work because of the COVID-19 outbreak. The agreement also increased weekly benefits for all unemployed workers by $600 per week for up to four months and extended benefit payments from 26 to 39 weeks.
Michigan’s small businesses negatively impacted by the COVID-19 virus were also able to apply for $10 million in grants and $10 million in loans through the Michigan Small Business Relief Program. The funding supported businesses facing drastic reductions in cash flow and was meant to be used for working capital to support payroll expenses, rent, mortgage payments, utility expenses, or other similar expenses that occur in the ordinary course of business.
There have been some positive developments since last year when the region took a severe economic beating. In October 2021, Governor Gretchen Whitmer joined the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) to announce two business expansion projects expected to create 424 new jobs and generate a total private investment of $23 million in Genesee County.
