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

FEDERAL UPDATES from CEDAM: The Community Economic Development Association of Michigan

Senate GOP releases HEALS Act funding — advocacy needed

On Monday night, the Senate Republicans released their plan for the next stimulus package. The $1 trillion stimulus includes:

  • An extra $200 per week in unemployment insurance until the beginning of October, when states would switch to a new system in which workers would be paid 70% of prior earnings
  • A second $1,200 economic impact payment, as well as $500 for each dependent with no age cap on the extra payment
  • $105 billion for education
  • A liability shield to protect businesses, universities, schools, and hospitals from corona-related lawsuits
  • Another round of funding for the Paycheck Protection Program

Unlike the HEROES Act passed by the House in May, which included almost $200 billion in additional funding for housing and homelessness programs, the Senate GOP proposal does not include:

  • Emergency rental assistance
  • A moratorium on evictions
  • Resources to prevent outbreaks among people experiencing homelessness
  • Additional resources to ensure housing security
  • Funding for state and local governments (but does allow municipalities and states to use an existing $150 billion pot of funds — approved as part of the last coronavirus relief bill — to plug budget holes
    Hazard pay for essential workers

Please continue to advocate with your members of Congress by phone, sending them an email, or tagging them on social media with the hashtag #RentReliefNow! Urge them to include housing assistance in the final relief package. The NLIHC Virtual Lobby Day Toolkit is available to help you urge Congress to immediately enact the essential housing protections and provisions that the House passed more than two months ago:
