|About MI Streamnet
MIstreamnet delivers streaming video to educators in Michigan, and increasingly, across the country.

The Fiscal Agent for the project is Wayne RESA.
The REMC MIstreamnet project is funded by grants from the non-profit REMC Association of Michigan and the Michigan Department of Education. REMC MIstreamnet is free to content viewers.
