MI Lighting Grants

Michigan has launched a million-dollar competitive grant program that will make it possible for cities, townships and counties across the state to acquire new lighting.

The grants are designed to encourage highly visible upgrades to more energy efficient indoor and outdoor lighting using newer technologies such as LEDs, induction lighting, and high-efficiency plasma lighting.

The new lighting will save on not only on energy but also maintenance due to the longer life of the lamps.

The funding will be made available through a competitive application process that is expected to result in 15 to 20 project grants ranging from $30,000 to $100,000.
