Ideas That Innovate: State & Local Policies

Ideas That Innovate: State & Local Policies is a report by the Welcoming Economies Global Network, a partnership between Welcoming America and Global Detroit that taps into the economic development opportunities created by immigrants across the Rust Belt.

The report outlines state and local policies that foster immigrant inclusion in varying levels of government including welcoming advisory boards and working groups, EB-5 investor visa regional centers, integrating high-skilled immigrants and refugees, resident leadership academies, and more. Each policy includes a brief description, cities that have enacted it, necessary state and local players, and additional information.
