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

GOV. WHITMER’S $100 MILLION MHCDF FUNDING PROPOSAL COULD EXPAND AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND SHAPE MICHIGAN’S ECONOMY

Monday, August 16 @ 10:00 am11:00 am

GOV. WHITMER’S $100 MILLION MHCDF FUNDING PROPOSAL COULD EXPAND AFFORDABLE HOUSING AND SHAPE MICHIGAN’S ECONOMY

Yesterday in Detroit, Gov. Gretchen Whitmer announced her proposal to allocate $100 million for the Michigan Housing and Community Development Fund (MHCDF). This funding provides community developers flexibility and could be used for rental housing, rehabs, home ownership projects, and downtown development initiatives to alleviate affordable housing needs in Michigan.

On a broader scale, this significant funding would have ripples of impact across our state for decades to come, revitalizing downtown areas, supporting low- to extremely low-income households in Michigan, take stress off of the labor market, and stabilize our communities as we recover from the effects of the pandemic.

CEDAM looks forward to working with our partners and members to build bipartisan support for this budget allocation. Please contact Jessica AcMoody, CEDAM’s policy director, if you would like to learn more or get involved with our advocacy efforts.
