Economic Development

Economic Development Planning Grant

Planning Investment Grant

The Inter-Tribal Council of Michigan, Inc. has received funding from the Economic Development Administration for purpose of continuation of a planning process that is designed to promote good economic planning, educate the tribes about the Economic Development Administration’s new regulations and initiatives and assure that tribes meeting the eligibility and requirements for economic ventures by documenting a Planning document called a Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy. The program will also engage in discussions on how the tribes can partner with their local planning districts, colleges or Universities and other State Collaborations to promote economic development for their total regions.

2021 Annual Survey

Inter-Tribal Council of Michigan is updating its list of Tribal economic development and public works projects for 2021 for participating tribes.  We will submit this list to the U.S. Department of Commerce, Economic Development Administration (EDA) as a part of our 2020-21 “Comprehensive Economic Development Strategy Annual Update” (CEDS).

EDA grant funds can be used for the construction of roads, water, sewer and other publicly-owned infrastructure needed to create and retain large numbers of jobs.

We want the Tribes to be as successful as possibly in qualifying for federal grants to help the Tribes compete successfully in the global economy.  While the focus of this inventory and the CEDS process is on projects that may qualify for funding from the EDA, the agency is looking to inventory all projects, programs and activities that may impact the Tribes economic well-being.  This could include projects that may be eligible for funding through other programs, such as USDA-Rural Development, CDBG, MDOT, FHWA, etc.  Projects that you wish to be considered for the “Priority Projects Listing” must be identified on the attached Priority Project Questionnaire Form.

How to Fill out Your 2021 CEDS Project List and Project Survey Forms

We have enclosed the following in seeking your input to the 2021 CEDS process:

  1. Tribal Project List
  1. Project Questionnaire Form
  1. Project Submission Form
  1. Project Criteria

Please update your Project List with any new project proposals, deletions, or other changes.  For your convenience, please note any change directly on the 2021 project list.  If there are no changes, please write “No Changes”.  If the status of a project has changed, please note it in the “Status” column.  Finally, please indicate if a project has been completed.

The enclosed survey form will allow you to report back on completed projects and/or activities that have transpired in your community during the past 12 months, as well as projects that you have secured funding for, projects you are seeking funding for and finally any problems or issues your community is currently facing.

We would like your input on identifying new priority projects in your community.  Please complete the attached Project Submission Form for each new project.

How to Return Your 2021 CEDS Project Survey Information

You can mail or fax your updated project list and project surveys forms (see information below) or email them to me at eda@itcmi.org. You may also fax your information to us at (906) 632-1810.

If you have any questions or comments about this process, please do not hesitate to call or e-mail.

Head Start

What We Do

Head Start is a federal program that promotes the school readiness of children ages birth to 5 from low-income families by enhancing their cognitive, social and emotional development.

Head Start programs provide a learning environment that supports children’s growth in:

  • Language and literacy
  • Cognition and general knowledge
  • Physical development and health
  • Social and emotional development
  • Approaches to learning

Head Start programs provide comprehensive services to enrolled children and their families, which include health, nutrition, social services and other services determined to be necessary by family needs assessments, in addition to education and cognitive development services. Head Start services are designed to be responsive to each child and family’s ethnic, cultural and linguistic heritage.

Head Start emphasizes the role of parents as their child’s first and most important teacher. Head Start programs build relationships with families that support:

  • Family well-being and positive parent-child relationships
  • Families as learners and lifelong educators
  • Family engagement in transitions
  • Family connections to peers and community
  • Families as advocates and leaders

Head Start Services

Head Start serves preschool-age children and their families. Many Head Start programs also provide Early Head Start, which serves infants, toddlers, pregnant women and their families who have incomes below the federal poverty level.

Over a million children are served by Head Start programs every year, including children in every U.S. state and territory and in American Indian and Alaskan Native communities. Since 1965, nearly 30 million low-income children and their families have received these comprehensive services to increase their school readiness.

Head Start programs offer a variety of service models, depending on the needs of the local community. Programs may be based in:

  • Centers or schools that children attend for part-day or full-day services
  • Family child care homes
  • Children’s own homes, where a staff person visits once a week to provide services to the child and families

Children and families who receive home-based services gather periodically with other enrolled families for a group learning experience facilitated by Head Start staff.
