Incentives Team

The Incentives Team monitors the inclusion of Detroiters on large construction projects qualifying under Executive Order 2016-1 (EO 2016-1) and union locals participating in the Detroit Skilled Trades Employment Program (STEP). Per EO 2016-1, all construction projects receiving $3,000,000.00 or more in public funding must ensure at least 51% of the hours worked on these projects are performed by Detroiters. STEP agreements are specific to union locals, establishing Detroiter membership thresholds in these unions in order to increase the number of skilled tradespeople residing in Detroit.
