TC Saves

TC Saves offers incentives such as home energy assessments and low interest loans to homeowners in Traverse City to help make their homes more warm, comfortable, and healthy while lowering energy costs.

Taste The Local Difference

Taste the Local Difference builds new markets for Northwest Lower Michigan’s farmers by connecting them to shoppers, grocers, restaurants, and other food businesses. We are your resource for local farm information, finding out what's in season and how to cook it, and much, much more.

Get Farming!

Get Farming! is your source for information, training, workshops and networking. New and beginning farmers as well as those transitioning to new, local markets will find business and marketing resources. Individual Development Accounts can help eligible producers with small but important financial assisitance.

Spend 10

Research has shown that if northwest Michigan households spent just $10 a week on local farm foods, our regional economy would gain nearly $5 million in new revenue each year. This is something we all can do!

Healthy Food for All

MLUI's Healthy Food for All programs connect schools, health programs and families to fresh local food.
