Gov. Ige signed the emergency proclamation for homelessness on Dec. 14, 2018, followed by a supplementary proclamation on Feb. 12, 2019, a second supplementary proclamation on April 12, 2019, a third on June 7, 2019, a fourth supplementary proclamation on Aug. 23, 2019, a sixth on Oct. 21, 2019.

Monday’s seventh supplementary proclamation extends the disaster emergency relief period until Feb. 14, 2020.
