September 14, 2020 | View as webpage
Dear Gov1 Subscriber,

In top news this week, hundreds of thousands of essential workers in Michigan are now eligible for free college. Initially announced in April, the Futures for Frontliners program is now accepting applications from residents who worked in places such as manufacturing, nursing homes, grocery stores, sanitation, delivery, retail and more.

And in honor of National Suicide Prevention Awareness Month, we're highlighting what your community can do to prevent suicide. Suicide is a complicated subject – with no easily identifiable, one-size-fits-all solution – but that hasn’t stopped communities all over the country from making meaningful strides to help those citizens who would intentionally self-harm.
