Lansing Region Survival Grant Awards
Following a statewide announcement from the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), the Lansing Economic Area Partnership (LEAP) announced 194 small businesses and nonprofits from across Clinton, Eaton and Ingham counties received $15,000 survival grants to alleviate impacts from the state Health Department December 2020 Gatherings and Mask Order.
From the 1,045 eligible applications in the Lansing region, our region received only enough funding to support approximately 18% of the applicants.
Our process involved nearly 30 diverse volunteers from across our three-county region with a thorough conflict of interest removal process to minimize bias.
