Regional Prosperity Initiative

Michigan has earned the title of America’s comeback state. It’s an economic success story that would not be possible without collaboration by the public, private and nonprofit sectors. Our shared accomplishments underscore the need to work in partnership toward a common vision of economic prosperity. That’s the goal of Gov. Rick Snyder’s Regional Prosperity Initiative.

What is the Regional Prosperity Initiative?

The Regional Prosperity Initiative was established in 2013 to help accelerate the state's economy and improve the quality of life for Michiganders by more effectively leveraging resources at a regional level. Regional planning and collaboration supported by responsive state services are critical to economic growth in Michgan. For more details, watch the video below or click here
