The Mobile Cuisine Startup Program is aimed at expanding the mobile cuisine (a.k.a. food truck) industry throughout Michigan. To contribute to quality places that people want to be in, projects should offer easily accessible and unique food options to patrons in public spaces and contribute to the local economy by working with other local businesses and farms. The intent of this program is to assist with community and economic development by increasing pedestrian traffic in downtowns and traditional commercial cores.
The Farmers Market Grant Program provides funds to existing farmers markets. Projects for consideration include unique and innovative design elements, amenities for patrons and vendors, multi-use spaces, multi-modal transportation, and signage. Projects that make markets more accessible to residents are also preferred.
Requests for proposals will be tentatively available on May 24, 2013. Grant applications are due July 1, 2013.
