About this grant

This grant will support the efforts of the Community Economic Development Association of Michigan to promote the development and sustainability of state and federal programs and policies that expand asset-building incentives and opportunities for low- and moderate-income families. Objectives for the two-year grant period include: 1) engaging new stakeholders to further asset-building goals; 2) educating policymakers about asset-building strategies and goals; and 3) working in each department within state government as it considers the programming implications that asset-building policy has for its investments and outcomes. The grantee is a Lansing-based nonprofit member organization dedicated to rebuilding neighborhoods and revitalizing communities throughout Michigan. This is one of nine grants aimed at building the capacity of state asset-building coalitions to effectively promote the development of state asset policies.
