The Kresge Foundation is seeking 15-20 community-based nonprofit groups across Detroit to share $2 million for projects to transform neighborhoods.
The funds are for the third round of Kresge Innovative Projects: Detroit, a $5 million pilot initiative launched in 2014. The program asked whether grants of up to $150,000 for projects designed by community-based organizations can make an impact across the city. The first two rounds of the project also included grants of up to $25,000 for groups to plan projects for subsequent applications.
The Kresge Detroit Program plans two open sessions for interested individuals to find out more about Kresge Innovative Projects: Detroit. They will be held Oct. 25 (from 6-7 p.m. at Jam Handy, 2900 E Grand Blvd, Detroit) and Nov. 15 (1-3 p.m. at TechTown, 440 Burroughs St., Detroit).
