The Greater Ann Arbor Region Prosperity Initiative invites proposals from organizations to support the implementation of the region’s Five-year Prosperity Strategy.
Established in 2014, the Greater Ann Arbor Region Prosperity Initiative is a collaboration of partners working to expand economic prosperity and the quality of life in Hillsdale, Jackson, Lenawee, Livingston, Monroe, and Washtenaw Counties. The six-county region was recently awarded grant funds from the State of Michigan’s 2019 Regional Prosperity Initiative (RPI). The majority of these funds will be used to advance the region’s Five-year Prosperity Strategy through challenge grants.
The region is interested in receiving applications that present innovative approaches and promise measurable progress toward the Five-year Prosperity Strategy. The region has 11 goals across two major focus areas: 1) growing and attracting talent to meet industry needs and 2) advancing a high-quality, diverse regional transportation system.
- Deadline for question submission: April 16, 2019
- Deadline for RFP submission: May 7, 2019
- Expected decision date: June 7, 2019
Additional information can be found in the full request for proposals.
