YORK TOWNSHIP, Mich. (AP) -- Toyota Motor Corp. says it's expanding its technical center in Michigan and moving 250 jobs from Kentucky.

The automaker's expansion in Washtenaw County's York Township near Ann Arbor comes as a result of a $4 million state grant approved Tuesday by the Michigan Strategic Fund.

Toyota plans to build a new facility and relocate the positions from its North American manufacturing headquarters in Erlanger, Kentucky.

Township officials also are considering tax incentives.

The center serves as the corporation's research and development arm in North America, and is responsible for the development of vehicles that are built and sold throughout the continent. The company also has R&D facilities in Ann Arbor, Plymouth and Livonia.
