Neighborhood Business Initiative Information Session

A key focus of the New Economy Initiative’s (NEI) work over the past six years has been providing grants to non-profit organizations that help entrepreneurs and small businesses grow.  Our objective has been to build a network of support that gets small businesses what they need, when they need it.  The work to date has borne fruit, but there’s more to be done.

We understand that we don’t know every organization that is providing some type of business support in the neighborhoods. And the organizations that we do know are adapting quickly to meet changing demands, so we may not be up-to-date on their most current efforts and programs.

With that in mind, working with Michigan Community Resources (MCR) and PolicyLink, NEI has developed the NEI Neighborhood Business Initiative. It begins with this linked survey. This survey allows us to learn more about the most current support happening on the ground, and ultimately help support and connect it.
