About this grant

The Center for Automotive Research will use Mott grant funds to develop a strategy for investing in Genesee County’s automotive assets to render maximum returns to the community in terms of increasing business for its firms and employment for its residents. This research initiative will detail Genesee County’s current automotive assets (companies, products, education, and labor), forecast future automotive trends in markets and technologies over the next ten years, estimate the impact of these trends on Genesee County’s automotive industry, and articulate a strategy for the county to pursue.
