About Rising Tide
The Rising Tide project supports vibrant, thriving communities to attract business investment and talent by creating a sustainable path toward economic stability and growth. The Michigan Economic Development Corporation, Talent Investment Agency, and Michigan State Housing Development Authority–collectively, the Talent and Economic Development (TED) team–have committed their assets to engaging specific communities across the state in order to empower them to shape their future and maximize economic potential. One community in each of the ten Michigan Prosperity Regions was selected using data about poverty, unemployment, renter occupancy, and vacancies, cross-matched by population.
