Large and Strategic Site Development

The Michigan Large and Strategic Sites Initiative will accelerate Michigan's economic recovery by providing resources for the state and local communities to make crucial investments in sites that will accommodate major expansion opportunities by existing and new employers considering Michigan. The Initiative will aim to develop at least three large sites (300 acres or larger) and an additional 15 smaller strategic sites statewide. Investing in needed infrastructure and site readiness could directly support the creation of more than 8,000 new, high-wage jobs and over $10 billion in private investment, in addition to thousands of new job opportunities and private investment by existing and new suppliers in Michigan. Per federal guidelines, this investment would be targeted to geographic areas and/or industries most impacted by the pandemic.
