LANSING, Mich., Aug. 24, 2022 — The Michigan Strategic Fund approved a tax incentive of over $1.5 million to support the Neogen Expansion Brownfield Redevelopment Project, which includes the construction of a new three-story manufacturing, research and development facility in downtown Lansing. Neogen Corporation, founded in Lansing in 1982, develops and markets products dedicated to food and animal safety. Michigan was chosen for the project over a competing site in Kentucky. State Rep. Sarah Anthony (D-Lansing) issued the following statement on the news:

“This much-needed $71.5 million project in downtown Lansing is a wise investment in our greatest asset: our people. It promises much more for our community than the transformation of a parking lot into a new, state-of-the-art facility: It will create 77 new, good-paying jobs and help Lansing’s economy continue to bounce back from the pandemic. The approval of this project is a promising sign not only for Lansing but the entire region.”
