Frequently Asked Questions

Michigan State Law (PA 296 of 2010) allows the DIA millage to be renewed by the voters in each of the counties for another 10 years effective from 2022 through 2031.

The rate the DIA is requesting for the millage renewal is 0.20 mills, which is the current rate.

As part of the tri-county millage passed in 2012, the DIA provides free bus transportation and free admission for students from Wayne, Oakland and Macomb counties. More than 70,000 students across the region participate in DIA programs each year and more than 1,500 teachers use DIA programs to supplement in-class curriculum.

In addition to free field trips and free programming for senior citizens, veterans and other community groups, the DIA is a key part of the comeback of southeast Michigan, helping to attract new businesses and talent and making our region a great place to live, work or raise a family.

Help us ensure the DIA can continue to serve Macomb, Oakland and Wayne county residents
