About this grant

The Brookings Institution’s Metropolitan Policy Program provides decisionmakers with cutting-edge research and policy assessments for improving the health and prosperity of cities and metropolitan areas. Previous support for the institution’s Great Lakes Urban Exchange initiative created a network of young adults in metropolitan areas across Michigan and the other Great Lakes states to help increase the region’s pool of talented young people. With a grant renewal, this project will further develop its network and will help young leaders effectively engage in urban revitalization efforts in Michigan and the entire Great Lakes region.
