The Lansing Economic Area Partnership (LEAP) has been awarded a Defense Industry Growth Regional Grant from the Michigan Economic Development Corp. (MEDC) to assist the MEDC and the Michigan Defense Center in expanding and growing key defense and homeland security industry growth sectors across Michigan.

The sectors include 3D printing, aerospace, advanced manufacturing, autonomous aerial systems, autonomous ground systems, cybersecurity, robotics and others that may pertain to Lansing’s specific region. Clinton, Eaton and Ingham counties have been identified by MEDC as having potential for growth in those industries, which contributed to the approval of LEAP’s successful grant application.

“We are often surprised to learn of companies doing tremendous business under federal contracts, many of them related to defense,” said Bob Trezise, president and CEO of LEAP. “It is our hope that this grant and resulting activity and report will help us better understand and support a growing defense cluster across the Lansing region.”
