Unlock More Opportunities for Financial Support. When you select a VIP site for your project, you will be automatically considered to receive up to $100,000 in Project Support. Prospective buyers may use these funds to conduct additional site studies, create a site plan, or even invest in project management as you get ready for development.



Projects on VIP sites are eligible to receive up to $100,000 in further support.

If you choose a VIP property for your project, VIP by DRP is here to support your success every step of the way. Once you commit to building on a VIP site, your project will be considered for an additional $100,000 in Project Support to help plan your development and accelerate your timeline.

Only one site will be selected to receive this Project Support each quarter—with priority going toward projects that create quality jobs in the advanced mobility and manufacturing sectors. Once awarded, these funds may be used to invest in additional site studies and even site planning, as you begin to consider everything from incentives to utilities.

At this level, you may also benefit from the other no-cost services offered by the Detroit Regional Partnership. As the region’s premier economic development organization, DRP provides assistance to hundreds of companies and site selectors interested in the 11-County Detroit Region. Our team is prepared to help you explore the surrounding market, navigate the permitting process, hire diverse talent and even secure a strong incentives package.

Whatever support you need, DRP is here to help you find your home in the Detroit Region.
