Kent County Back to Work PPE for Employers
Kent County has launched a program to provide Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) supplies to qualifying small businesses and other employers to assist in reopening their operations.
To qualify, employers must be located in Kent County, Michigan and must employ 100 people or fewer.
Qualifying employers may begin placing PPE requests until funding for this program is no longer available. All qualifying requests will be entered into a random selection process.
All employers selected in the selection process will be contacted after their requests are selected and filled, and they will be told where they can pick-up their order. Requests not picked up by employers within 5 days of notification will be returned to inventory. If an employer is not initially selected, they will remain eligible until either selected or funding is no longer available.
Employers can place requests online or by calling our fulfillment company partner at (616) 245-3636 between the hours of 8 am and 3 pm Monday through Friday. If the line is busy, the caller may leave a message with their contact information, and a representative will return the call to take the request.
PLEASE NOTE: All requests are being received and processed by a third-party fulfillment company. Please do not contact Kent County or the Kent County Health Department to place or inquire about a request. Submitting this application does not guarantee fulfillment. We expect high demand, and we may not be able to fulfill all requests, so we encourage all employers to continue to search for PPE through other channels. All requests are subject to availability.
