Economic and environmental sustainability are key components of successful communities. To help municipalities move forward in these areas, the Michigan Municipal League (MML) partners with MEDC and several other state agencies to support two programs: Redevelopment Ready Communities (RRC) and Michigan Green Communities (MGC) Challenge. These programs help communities evaluate their progress towards economic and environmental sustainability and identify areas of improvement. At the upcoming MML Capital Conference (March 21st-March 22nd in Lansing), MML will host a hands-on workshop on the RRC and MGC Challenge. At the workshop, communities can get real-time assistance from experts associated with each program to help you complete relevant program documents and access the opportunities each program offers.
