An Interlocal Partnership is a formal agreement for economic development that exists between the state and local units of government. It allows those local economic development corporations to appoint a representative to the Michigan Economic Development Corporation Board, which evaluates the performance of the MEDC and reviews the acts of the MEDC Executive Committee.

The MEDC recognizes and appreciates that there are numerous other types of economic development agencies that also work very closely in partnership with the MEDC. These partners include various local agencies, utilities, and non-profit economic development organizations. To recognize these partnerships, the Corporate Partnership agreement was developed, which states that both entities will cooperate and assist each other in implementing economic development strategies that promote economic growth.
