In 2016, the New Economy Initiative commissioned PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP and the W.E. Upjohn Institute for Employment Research to measure the economic and employment impact of its $96.2 million in grants since 2007. NEI then created a document to tell the stories behind that impact. Each of those reports can be downloaded below:

In addition to economic and employment impact reports, NEI also commissioned a survey of entrepreneurs in southeast Michigan’s attitudes regarding the resources available to them in the region.
