LANSING — The Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) announced today that the Michigan Strategic Fund approved a performance-based award from the Michigan Business Development Program that will assist Centria Healthcare in the expansion and relocation of their headquarters to Farmington Hills. In response, House Democratic Floor Leader Rep. Christine Greig (D-Farmington Hills), issued the following statement:

“I was pleased to attend the Michigan Strategic Fund meeting this morning and testify in support of the generous Michigan Business Development Program award for Centria Healthcare’s expansion project. This performance-based grant will allow the company to expand and relocate its headquarters to Farmington Hills. Centria is a leading national provider of autism therapy services offering Applied Behavior Analysis therapy, private duty nursing, and traumatic brain injury care. Because of the increased demand for autism services, Centria has outgrown its current Michigan facility. I am thrilled that Centria is able to expand in Michigan creating 1,200 more jobs over the next 5 years as it hires to meet the increased demand for its services. This is great news for Michigan, Farmington Hills and the many Michigan families who rely on Centria Healthcare’s services.”
