Community Event

Good for Grand Rapids is a Local First initiative that brings together and celebrates companies that have a demonstrated commitment to positive environmental and social change in Grand Rapids and beyond. The initiative inspires, equips, and celebrates Grand Rapids companies that create high-quality jobs, stronger communities, and a healthier Great Lakes region.

This March, Local First is excited to recognize the businesses who have participated in the initiative by taking the Quick Impact Assessment (QIA). The QIA measures dozens of best practices on employee, community, and environmental impact. Business owners can also see how they stack up with other businesses nationally.

Out of the 70 businesses who participated in 2017, Local First announces the eight top-scoring businesses that have been selected to receive the Good for Grand Rapids Awards. Heavy appetizers and a cash bar will be available.
