The Economic Growth Institute is participating in a new initiative supporting downriver Detroit communities. The U.S. Economic Development Administration has awarded a $1.6 million grant to support the Downriver Riverfront Communities Economic Recovery Implementation Project. The grant will help the region invest in its communities and businesses as two coal plant sites are decommissioned.
“The team at DCC saw opportunity in what could be a difficult transition. The downriver area has tremendous resources, and it’s exciting for EGI to be a part of putting their vision into action. We are looking forward to working with the DCC as they scale their economic development capacity these next three years.”
