DDA PRESS RELEASE
A special meeting of the Ishpeming Downtown Development Authority (DDA), was held on August 31, 2020. This meeting focused on the future through its annual budget process. Discussions revolved around how the DDA can return to the days of providing more for the Community. Past budgets have been very restricted as they continue to pay down the debt of the Malton Road project. However, the past strategy has paid off and there is a small projected gain in unrestricted budget for 2021.
Given the projected gains the DDA considered and approved some items they believe will support the downtown area and focus towards the future and potential revenue generation as a strategy. Believed to be popular among the residents, will be revitalizing our Community Holiday Lighting. Lighting the way to the downtown, replacing old holiday lighting with new, LED lights will brighten the way with a fresh new look. Additionally, the DDA intends to revitalize, on a small scale, the DDA Grant Program. Businesses in the Downtown will be able to apply for a 1:1 match grant for façade improvements or aid in making their business ADA compliant.
Other items approved for fiscal year 2021 include an Architectural and Engineering Design for a Skate Park, and matching funds for a grant to support the development of a Forest Management Plan which will also include street and park tree inventories and urban tree canopy assessment.
The future planning included commitment for future years to continue these efforts. The Capital Investment Strategy had been overshadowed by the limited budget but as we hope to see a more predictable and steady budget, the focus must be forward thinking.
$10,000 per year for ten years – Christmas / Holiday Lighting Improvements
$12,500 maximum for Skate Park A&E Design
$20,000 per year for 10 years – Grant program (Maximum single grant $10,000)
$15,000 Grant Match for Forrest Management Plan
$25,000 FY 2022 Grant Match for Skate Park Construction (Assumes a successful grant application.

Michigan has received nearly $880 million in federal funding through the CARES Act to support various COVID-19 response actions around the state. Last week, Governor Whitmer signed a bipartisan supplemental bill into law to put this funding to work for Michigan citizens, small businesses and communities, including $115 million appropriated to the Michigan Strategic Fund (MSF) to deploy two critical business relief programs.
In an effort to quickly get these funds into the hands of those who need them most, the MSF Board held a special meeting this week to authorize the following programs:
- The $100 million Michigan Small Business Restart Program, which will work to reduce the economic impact of the ongoing pandemic on Michigan small businesses and workers. Modeled after the Michigan Small Business Relief Program, the $100 million will be allocated among 15 local economic development organizations to administer the grants to businesses in all 83 Michigan counties. Eligible business may apply for grants up to $20,000 and a minimum of 30 percent of the funds must be awarded to eligible women-owned, minority-owned or veteran-owned eligible businesses. Applications for the Michigan Small Business Restart Program will be available beginning July 15, 2020, at michiganbusiness.org/restart.
- The $15 million Michigan Agricultural Safety Grant Program will provide economic assistance for Michigan farms and agricultural processors to mitigate risks of the COVID-19 virus across the state’s food production industry. Grants will be available on a first come, first serve basis with $10 million total available for agricultural processers and $5 million available for farms. Applications will be processed by Michigan-based GreenStone Farm Credit Services, one of America’s largest rural lenders. Applications will be available beginning July 15, 2020 with information available at michiganbusiness.org/agsafety.
Attached, you will find FAQ documents about each of these programs to provide you more information including eligibility criteria, timelines and eligible uses of the funds.
The State of Michigan remains committed to leveraging all resources – at every level of government – to make sure Michigan is in a position to support the small businesses, nonprofits and industries that are so vital to our state’s economy, while continuing to set a path to long-term recovery.
