Local First launched the Good for Grand Rapids campaign in 2017. Its goal was to recognize companies making a measurable, positive contribution to Grand Rapids. During its first year, roughly 70 businesses took the Quick Impact Assessment. Of these, eight top-scoring businesses were selected to receive the Good for Grand Rapids Awards at the first annual awards ceremony.
