Detroit Next Michigan Development Corporation

The city of Detroit has received Michigan Strategic Fund approval as the state's seventh and final Next Michigan Development Corporation. In its role as a Next Michigan Development Corporation, D-NMDC will seek to attract eligible multi-modal businesses to key employment districts within the city, which have the greatest potential for growth in the industries of manufacturing, transportation, distribution and logistics. The NMDC designation grants the authority to offer tax incentives such as renaissance zones, real and personal property tax exemptions, and local development financing. 
The D-NMDC has regularly scheduled meetings. All meeting announcements are posted outside DEGC offices in the Guardian Building, 500 Griswold, Suite 2200, and at the CAYMC building in Detroit.  Check our calendar for meeting dates.
