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

    Our Stakeholders

    The core partners are the initiators of the BECDD process, and have since become part of the Phase Three BECDD Steering Committee. Our stakeholders comprise representatives from ground-level CDOs, GROs and their partners in the government, philanthropy, academic, civic and business sectors. These stakeholders have engaged in our process in a variety of ways — on our Steering Committee, our  Advisory Council; or as participants in our Kitchen Cabinets (2016), Planning Teams (2017), Task Forces (2018–2021), Stakeholder Forums (2019–2020), Alignment Forums (2021), Discussion Groups (2021) or our Annual Summits. Explore our entire stakeholder list here.


    Core Partners

    Community Development Advocates of Detroit, Lawrence Technological University and Michigan Nonprofit Association were our three core partners and initiating sponsors.

    Representatives from these organizations served as our de facto board of directors,” guiding our process and supporting the day‐to‐day BECDD staff of two. As our system developed, our core partners’ role pivoted from guiding the process to serving on the Steering Committee with other stakeholders.

    Community Development Advocates of Detroit (CDAD)

    For 20 years, CDAD has served as a key entity supporting community development in Detroit. CDAD’s 2008–2010 thought-leadership played a critical role in developing the original thinking and strategies to create an equitable community development system in Detroit.

    Lawrence Technological University (LTU)

    LTU was our academic partner, ensuring our research was comprehensive, complete and applicable. Our work with LTU also is helping to create a pipeline of leaders that includes academic tracks for community development. 

    Michigan Nonprofit Association (MNA)

    MNA is a statewide membership organization dedicated to serving the diverse nonprofit sector through civic engagement, capacity‐building, data and technology, training and advocacy. MNA has played a crucial role in helping us create the system for building the capacity of Detroit CDOs and GROs and serves as fiduciary for BECDD.


    BECDD Steering Committee

    At the beginning of 2019, the Core Partners and Advisory Council members made a decision to create a new body of 15 organizations representing our broad diversity of stakeholders called the BECDD Steering Committee” (BSC).   This group has overseen the last phase of the BECDD system-building process,  working with experts to design and launch the overall system coordination structure and process, shepherd and help integrate the test projects” that were developed out of the 2018 Task Forces, and working with task forces to finalize the long-term system capitalization strategy.

This regular feedback is helping to inform the BSC in their decision making.
