EVART — Gov. Rick Snyder paid a visit to Evart on Thursday to meet with city, school and area officials to discuss the Rising Tide program and how it is expected to benefit the city.
Rising Tide is an initiative meant to supply at-risk communities with tools to design and build a successful economic framework, and to also create a sustainable path toward economic stability and growth. Designed by Snyder and implemented by the Department of Talent and Economic Development, one community in each of Michigan's 10 regions were selected based on data cross-matched by the population poverty level, unemployment level, labor participation rate, rental occupied units, vacancy rates and the percentage of households receiving food stamps.
