Progress Dashboard

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

CEDAM Updates

Sign letter urging President-Elect Biden to keep families housed during the pandemic

Join NLIHC and advocates from across the nation by signing your organization onto a national letter urging President-elect Biden to take immediate action to issue an Executive Order that extends, improves, and enforces the federal eviction moratorium through the end of the pandemic.

Though the CDC-issued moratorium was extended through the end of January by the recent coronavirus relief package, on February 1 tens of millions of low-income renters will be at risk of losing their homes and, with them, their ability to keep themselves and their families safe and healthy.

We are also urging the Biden administration to strengthen the moratorium by closing loopholes and making it easier for renters to be protected, and to enforce the criminal penalties against landlords who violate the moratorium.

We encourage all local, state, and national organizations and elected officials to sign onto and share the letter widely before the deadline on January 15!  

Sign on to the letter
