2023 Call for Projects!
The MSU U.S. EDA University Center for Regional Economic Innovation (REI) funds several types of projects: Co-Learning Plans Projects, researched and written by professionals; Co-Implementation Plans, led by Innovation Fellows; and Student-Led, Faculty-Guided Technical Assistance projects, researched and written by student teams at Michigan universities and colleges. Submitted projects will receive priority if they serve Asset Limited-Income Constrained-Employed (ALICE) populations living within Redevelopment Ready Communities (RRCs) and/or Opportunity Zones (OZs). Projects are encouraged to focus on one of four foci areas, including: resiliency planning, financial resiliency, circular economies, or 21st-century communications infrastructure. Keep an eye out for 2023 project applications, which will be opening soon!
