Governor Snyder signed Executive Order 2012-9 on June 26, 2012 abolishing the MEGA Board and transferring the various responsibilities of the MEGA to the Michigan Strategic Fund effective August 25, 2012. The MSF board has the following responsibilities:
In June 2023, the Michigan Strategic Fund Board voted to adopt a public comment policy to ensure all members of the public have a fair and adequate opportunity to be heard at Board meetings and to help facilitate orderly conduct of the meeting itself pursuant to the Open Meetings Act. The MSF and MEDC value public comments and appreciate members of the public taking time to join us and share their perspectives on projects taking place throughout the state.
A copy of the Public Comment Policy is available here. For those who would like to make a public comment, you may register prior to the meeting by clicking on the button below. The meeting moderator will call on the last 4 digits of your phone number to signal your turn to speak. All comments should be kept to three minutes or less.
Public comments and supporting materials may also be submitted to the board at email@example.com. In order to ensure that members of the MSF Board have access to comments and materials submitted via email, they must be provided no later than noon the day prior to the scheduled meeting. The MEDC cannot guarantee that materials provided after this deadline will be incorporated into the board materials for the scheduled meetings.
The Michigan Strategic Fund meets monthly in Lansing and continues to help fuel new economic activity across Michigan, strengthening our communities and creating good jobs for our residents.
An 11-member board has statutory authority to direct state appropriations to support business development, community development, talent enhancement and state marketing activities, including the promotion of tourism, film industry, arts and cultural affairs.
On December 31, 2018, the U.S. Department of Treasury published final regulations amending the public approval requirements for tax-exempt private activity bonds. The Tax Equity and Fiscal Responsibility Act of 1982 ("TEFRA") provided for public notice, hearing and approval requirements set forth in Section 147(f) of the internal revenue code of 1986, as amended. The TEFRA Requirements must be satisfied as a precondition to the issuance of tax exempt private activity bonds, including exempt facility bonds and qualified 50l(c)(3) bonds. The Final TEFRA Regulations apply to all tax-exempt private activity bonds issued on or after April 1, 2019, by the Michigan Finance Authority, Michigan State Housing Development Authority, and Michigan Strategic Fund.
All meetings are held at the MEDC Lansing Office, Lake Michigan Conference Room, at 10:00 a.m. unless otherwise noted.
