(LANSING) – The City of Three Rivers is receiving funds to help with a downtown improvement project.

Governor Gretchen Whitmer and the Michigan Economic Development Corporation announced Friday that five communities have been awarded a total of $100,000 in grants to support downtown enhancement and improvement projects.

The Main Street Vibrancy Grant Program is intended to provide grants of $20,000 to Select or Master Level Michigan Main Street communities for projects that enhance the vibrancy and economic vitality of Michigan Main Street downtowns. Projects could include pop up shop programs; implementation of a marketing or advertising campaign; physical improvements such as new seating, signage or art; and other transformative projects that help create a sense of place and a more vibrant community.

Three Rivers Main Street Executive Director Tricia Meyer says they will use the Main Street Vibrancy Grant to accomplish great things as they anticipate a continued surge in foot traffic and new visitors with the announcement of their newly designated Social District called Main Street Commons. Meyer says Three Rivers is a small community with big dreams and limited resources, and this funding will enable them to further transform their charming downtown into a vibrant place to explore.

Also receiving grants are Blissfield, downtown Lansing, Grayling and Owosso.
