$35,000 Grant to Assess Need for Infrastructure Improvements
"Upgrading our infrastructure is a primary component of our economic development and environmental protection objectives," Cheboygan City Manager Scott McNeil said. "We are very pleased to have this opportunity to partner with the MEDC to help meet these objectives and address important business retention efforts as well."
There are 1,655 local governments within the state eligible to apply for CDBG funds administered by the MEDC. Projects are approved contingent upon compliance with state and federal requirements.
The Michigan Economic Development Corporation, a partnership between the state and local communities, promotes smart economic growth by developing strategies and providing services to create and retain good jobs and a high quality of life.
