The Timberland Quilt Trail and other regional trails take our art and culture out into the farms and towns, bringing visitors to the rural communities of NE Michigan.




We support entrepreneurship with business planning, a resource library, and technical support, because in rural communities, jobs come from startups, small businesses, and family enterprises.


Community Connections

We encourage Community Connections because when we spend our money on *local* activities, businesses, artists, musicians, goods and services, those dollars remain and circulate to support the entire community.



The Economic Development Alliance, an independent nonprofit (501(c)3) organization, has the mission to promote economic success in the rural communities of Northeast Michigan.       989.848.5757
