- The Michigan REFORGE is a Program proposal that was incubated by MIFBI for support from the State of Michigan. It is primarily aimed at applied research and development prioritized by industry to accelerate economic development. While conceived by MiFBI, if funded, REFORGE would be a fully independent program. To incentivize the investment by the state, an industry-led investment program was thought to be needed and led to efforts by MiFBI to facilitate a check-off program.
The purpose of REFORGE is to:
Support existing industries by making them more competitive and profitable
Create more higher-value opportunities
