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

Advancing a Racially Equitable COVID-19 Recovery.

Monday, May 10 @ 12:00 pm5:00 pm

New Detroit is  excited to announce our next Town Hall will be live on Zoom and Facebook, Advancing a Racially Equitable COVID-19 Recovery.” This is the first of a 3‑part Town Hall series based on a report we commissioned from the Brookings Institute with support from Rocket Community Fund, Examining and Addressing COVID-19 Racial Disparities in Detroit.” As noted in the report, The racial gap in COVID-19 diagnosis is not only disproportionately killing Black people but killing Black communities.” Report recommendations therefore touch not only on health but also economic security, employment, education, and housing.

This 1st Town Hall features the report’s authors, Dr. Rashawn Ray and Jane Fran Morgan, moderated by Kat Stafford, and will air Monday, May 10th at noon.
