In 2009 General Electric announced construction of an advanced manufacturing technology and software development center in Van Buren Township. From the state the company received $73.9 million in MEGA (Michigan Economic Growth Authority) business tax credits paid over 12 years (listed separately in the main Subsidy Tracker data in the 2009 entry for the program). In 2010 the company received an additional $2.3 million in unspecified tax credits for aviation work at the same campus. (In 2009, the federal government granted GE $4.5 million in a stimulus grant; not included in the total). The job and investment projections represent GE's commitment from 2009.
