Detroiters will soon be able to apply for funding to cover the cost to repurpose empty land in their neighborhoods.
The City of Detroit is finalizing a contract with Wayne Metro Community Action Agency to administer the Neighborhood Beautification Program, which provides $2.25 million for street-level organizations to turn vacant properties into “community connectors.” A total of 150 grants ranging from $500 to $15,000 will be awarded by the end of 2024, starting with a first round of 50 grants that will be distributed this summer.
