Greater Ann Arbor Region Releases 2018 Challenge Grants Request for Proposals

Deadline for Submission is June 29, 2018

The Greater Ann Arbor Region (GAAR) Prosperity Initiative invites proposals from organizations to support the implementation of the region’s Five-year Prosperity Strategy.

Established in 2014, the GAAR Prosperity Initiative is a collaboration of partners working to expand economic prosperity and improve the quality of life in Hillsdale, Jackson, Lenawee, Livingston, Monroe, and Washtenaw Counties. The six-county region was recently awarded grant funds from the State of Michigan’s 2018 Regional Prosperity Initiative (RPI). The majority of these funds will be used to advance the area’s strategic efforts through challenge grants.

The region is interested in receiving applications that present innovative approaches and promise measurable progress toward the Five-year Prosperity Strategy released in March 2015. The region has 11 goals across two major focus areas: 1) growing and attracting talent to meet industry needs and 2) advancing a high-quality, diverse regional transportation system.

Important Dates:

  • Bidders’ conference, May 17, 2018
  • Deadline for question submission, May 18, 2018
  • Q&A from bidders’ conference and email posted to website, May 25, 2018
  • Deadline for RFP submission, June 29, 2018
