Federal Pass Through Funds
By federal statute, a portion of timber and mineral revenue generated from the national forests in Michigan is disbursed to the counties in which the forests are located. These revenues are paid to the State who in turn disburses the monies to the counties. The counties are required by law (P.A. 182 of 1990) to distribute 75% of the funds to local school districts for school purposes and 25% to townships for the improvement of county roads within those townships.
An application process is not necessary because the revenues are flow through and are disbursed in accordance with federal and State statutes.
