The Growing Michigan Together Council (the Council) established by Governor Gretchen Whitmer in June 2023 will develop a long-term vision that addresses current and future challenges and sets Michigan up for success in the 21st Century.

The Council will advise the governor on specific policies to grow Michigan’s population, including identifying a population goal for 2050. It will also look at ways to successfully attract and retain talent, improve preK-12 educational outcomes and long-term funding solutions for higher education, and develop strategies for upgrading and modernizing our transportation and water infrastructure, including developing long-term, sustainable funding solutions. The Council will present its findings in December 2023 by submitting a report to the governor, the Michigan House of Representatives, and the Michigan Senate.
