BENTON HARBOR, Mich. (WNDU) - Help is on the way for Benton Harbor residents struggling to pay rent and water bills due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

According to our reporting partners at the Herald-Palladium, city commissioners approved spending $600,000 for rental assistance, and $300,000 for help with water bills from the money the city is receiving from the American Rescue Plan.

The city expects to receive almost $10 million directly from the federal government due to its status as an entitlement city.
