IDEAS Project:

The IDEAS Project is a cooperative effort with the Michigan State University EDA University Center for Regional Economic Innovation. It will create a cooperative set of practices and initiatives to encourage entrepreneurial activity in Briley Township. Specifically, it will produce a Guide Book for Community Enhancement that will establish a formalized, user-friendly process for encouraging the identification and development of innovative collaboration, commerce, communication, building projects and programs. By disseminating this knowledge throughout Briley Township, a rural area with high unemployment, the goal is to spur innovation and improve the standing of the region as an entrepreneurial area.
