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

BY MARCH 1: CFSEM’s Community Policing Innovations Fund for TA

Monday, March 1 @ 5:00 pm

The Community Policing Innovations Fund was established to identify and support pathways for investment, leadership, and impact on community projects that address systemic inequities in policing and public safety.

They are seeking applications from communities across the seven-county region who have a genuine commitment to innovating their local police departments by building change in their practices and/or redesigning their structure and services.
Selected communities will receive an average of $40,000 towards local and national technical assistance support for the following priority areas:
  • Use of Force
  • Officer Accountability
  • Disparate Enforcement and Treatment
  • Re-Imagining Public Safety
  • Truth & Reconciliation Efforts
Applications are open now. They are due on March 1, 2021 by 5:00 p.m.

They are also welcoming local technical assistance providers who are working in these priority areas to apply to be hired for portions of this effort. Details here:
