Valued Northeast Michigan PTAC Client,

Given the rapidly changing circumstances related to COVID19, the Northeast Michigan PTAC staff will be implementing some risk reduction procedures that will affect the way that we interact with our clients.

We are taking this situation very seriously by working remotely and believe physical distancing at this critical point will help flatten the curve of this outbreak.

  • The Northeast Michigan PTAC will continue to provide one-on-one counseling using phone or meeting software such as Go-To-Meeting.
  • You will still be able to contact us via email (see below) or phone (989)733-8540, your call will be forwarded to PTAC staff.
  • Please review the COVID-19 Playbook which covers information on doing business with the federal and state government at this time.

As always, stay up to date with all happenings regarding the current issues, as well as all contracting and PTAC happenings going forward by following us on Twitter and Facebook.
