Grow Michigan, an investment fund subsidiary of the Michigan Strategic Fund, announced new loans totaling $5 million for the fourth quarter of 2015. The fund provided loans to Instaset Corp., and Rex Performance Products, both from St. Clair County, as well as Macomb-based Utility Resource Group.

The fund’s total Michigan investment now comes to $44.2 million.

Grow Michigan focuses investments in low-and-moderate income areas, says Russell C. Youngdahl Jr., CEO of Grow Michigan.
