By AP

LANSING, MI – Michigan will get about $19.6 million in federal stimulus money for energy efficiency and conservation projects.

The U.S. Department of Energy said in a release Monday the block grant will go toward energy efficiency projects and programs, and to building audits, upgrades and codes.

The Michigan package is part of $354 million awarded to 22 states.

The Energy Department says the Michigan grant will be administered by the state Department of Labor, Energy and Economic Growth's Bureau of Energy Systems. It's expected to create or retain hundreds of jobs.
