The Community Reinvestment Fund was established as part of the Mid-Michigan Program for Greater Sustainability to ensure that traditionally underserved and marginalized populations have the opportunity to get involved in the planning process at all levels of government. The Fund is made possible by a grant from the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development Sustainable Communities program to the Tri-County Regional Planning Commission as part of the Mid-Michigan Program for Greater Sustainability. The Fund is administered by the Mid-Michigan Environmental Action Council and has an oversight board of ten members. The Community Reinvestment Fund provides opportunities for nonprofit organizations in the tri-county area (Clinton, Eaton & Ingham counties) to engage traditionally underserved and marginalized populations in planning at all levels of government. A complete list of current grantees can be found here.
