public officials about the best tools for the improvement of communities.

Downtown Lansing

The MDA supports the Revitalizing Downtowns Act of 2021 (S. 2511/H.R. 4759) which would provide tools to support downtowns recovering from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, create jobs, and provide for housing in these important city centers.  For more information regarding the Act, please click here.  For an example of a letter of support your community can send to your Congressperson, please click here


The MDA continues to encourage all DDA and Downtown Managers and stakeholders to be reaching out to their local representatives and senators and continue to build relationships.
