Michigan Public Policy Survey: Local officials react to state policy innovation tying revenue sharing to dashboards and incentive funding

This research report presents findings from the Michigan Public Policy Survey, an ongoing survey research program targeted at the chief elected official and chief appointed official in every unit of general purpose local government in Michigan. This report focuses on how local leaders and their governments are reacting to a major policy innovation implemented by the state of Michigan in 2011: replacing a formula-based revenue sharing program with an incentive-based program designed to foster local government reform. The state's new program is called the Economic Vitality Incentive Program (EVIP).
