CLOSUP's Michigan Public Policy Survey on state funding incentives for local collaborations appears in local, regional news outlets

April 9, 2012

Findings from a recent Michigan Public Policy Survey (MPPS) published by the Center for Local, State, and Urban Policy (CLOSUP) were cited in an Associated Press story published in a number of local and regional news sources including the Detroit Free Press, Detroit News, CBS Detroit, Lansing State Journal, WTOL TV 11 in Toledo, and the Wisconsin Rapids Tribune.

The survey, "State funding incentives increase local collaboration, but also raise concerns," focuses on the second set of "best practices" in Michigan Governor Synder's Economic Vitality Incentive Program: intergovernmental collaboration and consolidation. The report examines how Michigan's local governments are responding to the state's incentive-driven push for local reform.
