Here is the CMT Uptime check phrase
A new proposed tax credit from Gov. Gretchen Whitmer would provide up to $5,000 in relief to caregivers in the state.

Advocates suggest the relief would be especially helpful for members of the “sandwich” generation — working adults who care for their minor children, while simultaneously serving as the primary caregiver for aging parents and the challenges they face with conditions like dementia.

Danielle Atkinson, founding director of Mothering Justice, joined Stephen Henderson on Detroit Today Wednesday to discuss why her organization is supportive of the proposal. Wayne State University Assistant Professor Amanda Leggett also joined the conversation to detail her research into the “sandwich” generation, including what makes their caretaking challenges unique and ways we can help reduce the burden.
