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

Governor Whitmer signs bill to appropriate remaining rental assistance funds

Today, Governor Whitmer signed a bill to invest $2.2 billion in federal COVID-19 relief funding to support individuals, families, and businesses struggling as a result of the pandemic. The bill includes the remainder of the CARES Act funding—$378.3 million—to fund the COVID Emergency Rental Assistance (CERA) program. CERA assists renter households at or below 80% of the area median income, with rental and utility assistance payments, housing stability services, and case management to eligible renter households impacted by COVID-19.
