Saginaw is committed to being a proactive community, striving to provide economic growth and opportunity. Saginaw is a Redevelopment Ready Community (RRC), which means the City is in the process of becoming certified by the Michigan Economic Development Corporation in transparency, predictability, and efficiency into daily development practices. The majority of marketing work for the City is done by the Saginaw Economic Development Corporation (SEDC) and Saginaw Future. The SEDC lends funds to individuals who want to start or expand a business in the city, hosts educational workshops and business expos, and provides technical assistance to businesses in the city. The goals of the SEDC are to create and retain jobs, provide economic opportunities, and take part in redevelopment. Saginaw Future Inc. is involved in generating new investment and job growth in Saginaw Country. Saginaw Future is a nonprofit alliance of local business, the Saginaw Country Chamber of Commerce, Country and City of Saginaw, 15 local municipalities, labor organizations and local foundations. Currently a marketing guide is in the early stages of development.
