Where have we been?

Where have we been?

Where are we now?

Phase 1 Phase 2 Phase 3

Phase 1 (2016)

We recruited stakeholders to analyze the problem, created a beginning set of system elements, and began considering a framework for a Detroit community development system.

Phase 2 (2017-2018)

We formed an Advisory Council, conducted extensive research resulting in a specific set of challenges and created Task Forces to respond to those challenges and develop test-projects for most of the elements.

Phase 3 (2019-2020)

Stakeholders will champion elements of the system, working closely with CDOs and GROs, by “test-piloting” project ideas:

  • Coordination of Capacity Building Services
  • Community Development Career Navigation Model
  • Neighborhood Vitality Success Framework
  • Neighborhood Voice and Advocacy Framework
  • At least two city-CDO funded partnerships

Simultaneously we will:

  • Activate the System Capitalization element
  • Establish a governance/oversight structure
  • Develop a process to resolve CDO coverage for all neighborhoods

American Rescue Plan Act: Status of Funds, Resources, and More

Wednesday, December 1 @ 12:00 pm1:00 pm

Join the Michigan Coalition Against Homelessness (MCAH) and the Community Economic Development Association of Michigan (CEDAM) for a joint webinar on the opportunities and uses of American Rescue Plan (ARP) Act funding. In addition to hearing an overview of ARP funding, we will highlight how other states are using funds and share ways you can get involved.


On March 11, 2021, President Biden signed the American Rescue Plan Act into law. The $1.9 trillion package is intended to combat the COVID-19 pandemic and the corresponding economic crisis. Michigan at a state level received over $5 billion in funding with Michigan cities and counties receiving additional funding. During the webinar, we will cover the ARP funding process and timeline, hear examples from other states about how they are planning to use ARP funds, share useful resources, and hear any questions or feedback that you may have. Join us for an important and informative conversation Tuesday, December 1 at 12pm.

This webinar is free for all to attend. Register today!
