LANSING, Mich., Sept. 9, 2022 — State Rep. Sarah Anthony (D-Lansing) and other policymakers, including Lt. Gov. Garlin Gilchrist II, state Sen. Curtis Hertel Jr. (D-East Lansing) and Lansing Mayor Andy Schor, participated in a roundtable earlier this week at the Capitol Area Housing Partnership Neighborhood Empowerment Center to discuss the benefits of Michigan Economic Development Corporation’s Community Revitalization and Placemaking Grants Program (RAP Program). Lansing received a grant of over $6.5 million to support small businesses, community nonprofits and housing needs. Anthony issued the following statement on the grant:

“Lansing residents expect and deserve real investments in the community. From affordable, accessible housing, to quality child care and necessary community resource centers, we must keep focused on purposeful economic redevelopment. With these RAP Program funds, spaces across the community are set to be transformed into mixed-use workforce and residential housing units that will better serve our people. I look forward to continuing the work to revitalize Lansing in a way that benefits working families, small businesses and our entire region.”
