In conjunction with NEMCOG and the Target Alpena organization, the Charter Township of Oscodaís Economic Improvement Director has been heavily involved in the MEDCís Small Business Relief Program that was announced today. Working through the Michigan Economic Development Corporation (MEDC), Target Alpena will be processing applications for grants on their behalf for the following five counties Ė Alcona, Alpena, Cheboygan, Iosco, and Presque Isle. Please go to for more information on criteria and the application process. Applications and materials must be turned in by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, April 3, 2020 to be considered. Please contact Alpena Area Chamber of Commerce with questions 989.354.4181.

We encourage our businesses in Iosco County impacted by the Governorís Executive Order 2020-20 to review the grant program and application process and make application where they see a fit. We understand these are extremely trying times for all businesses, and while not every business will likely be successful with an application, we want to make sure as many businesses in Iosco County are helped as possible.

Welcome to a Place Where the Opportunities for Recreation and Relaxation Naturally Abound

Set peacefully along the shores of beautiful Lake Huron and the mighty AuSable River, Oscoda offers more than 120 square miles of pure Michigan. 
From canoeing to sunbathing, the natural destinations of our community provide activities for water enthusiasts of all varieties. For visitors whose interests are more land-oriented, Oscoda's downtown district includes an assortment of eclectic shopping and renown restaurants. And lovers of history and the outdoors alike know Oscoda as the home of the famous Lumberman's Monument located in the Lake Huron National Forest.

Oscoda's natural resources have always played an important role in the community, even as local industry has changed over the years. The area was first settled in the late 1860s. Originally named, AuSable, the town was renamed based on the writings of Henry Schoolcraft, who named it after the American Indian words "Ossim" and "Muscoda," meaning "Pebbly Prairie." Oscoda played a major role in the distribution of lumber on the Great Lakes during the lumbering era. Today, our primary industry is tourism thanks to the abundance of year-round recreational activities available to residents and visitors, such as camping, fishing, hunting, cross country skiing, snowmobiling and more.

Thank you for taking the time to learn more about the beauty, the amenities and the fun of Oscoda Township. We welcome you to enjoy all our community has to offer...naturally.
