LANSING, Mich. State Sen. Kim LaSata applauded two Niles businesses for being awarded Match on Main program grants from the Michigan Economic Development Corp. (MEDC).
Traphouse 24, a new gym in downtown Niles, and Niles Brewing Company were each awarded a $25,000 grant through the program. Niles was one of only nine communities in the state that were awarded more than $260,000 in program grants.
“This is an exciting announcement that will help make Niles that much more of an attractive place for business, residents and visitors alike,” said LaSata, R-Bainbridge Township. “I appreciate the MEDC’s continued support of Southwest Michigan.”
According to the MEDC, Match on Main is a new pilot program launched last March aimed at supporting small businesses looking to expand or establish themselves in a Michigan Main Street community. Niles was one of two communities chosen at the time to participate in the pilot program.
