Mayor Maureen Miller Brosnan calls on Federal lawmakers to direct relief funding to cities hit hardest by the crisis. The Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) formula, which was used to distribute federal relief funds, wasn’t designed to help in a pandemic and didn’t take into account how hard the cities were impacted. Livonia received the least amount of any city receiving funds in Wayne County despite being the second hardest hit by COVID-19 in the county. 

If you wish to voice your support for our City, please contact our Congressional representatives and ask them to ensure Livonia gets its fair share of coronavirus relief funding. 

Congresswoman Haley Stevens (202) 225-8171 or stevens.house.gov/contact/email-me 
Senator Gary Peters (202) 224-6221 or  www.peters.senate.gov/contact/email-gary 
Senator Debbie Stabenow (202) 224-4822 or  www.stabenow.senate.gov/contact
