Thriving places help define a community’s economic vitality–from bike trails and pocket parks to public sculpture projects, they contribute to a strong quality of life, help attract and retain talent and grow stronger local economies.
Public Spaces Community Places (PSCP) is a powerful crowdgranting program and public placemaking initiative that builds vibrant communities across Michigan. Created by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC) in 2014 in collaboration with the Michigan Municipal League and Patronicity, PSCP was the first program of its kind in the country. Through PSCP, local residents can use crowdfunding to be part of the development of placemaking projects in their communities and receive a matching grant of up to $50,000 from the MEDC. MEDC remains committed to supporting these efforts across Michigan and has contributed $12 million in matching grant funds since 2014.
