About the Program

The NeighborHUB Grant Program, powered by the Detroit Regional Chamber and General Motors (GM), will award five grants of up to $30,000 to nonprofit organizations that propose the most innovative and collaborative solutions to the issues facing the city’s neighborhoods. Any registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working in the cities of Detroit, Hamtramck or Highland Park are eligible to apply.

Successful proposals will have two main components:

  1. Programming focused on needs identified by the community.
  2. Identify an accessible physical space to house programming – i.e. a vacant storefront or within an existing building.

“Detroit’s renaissance is dependent on the future sustainability of the neighborhoods beyond the downtown district,” said Tammy Carnrike, chief operating officer for the Detroit Regional Chamber. “A stronger Detroit – in all corners – will boost economic growth in our region, which is why we are partnering with GM to empower residents and neighborhoods through the nonprofit organizations that are closest to the communities.”

The NeighborHUB program is a collaborative effort between the Chamber and GM, and is designed to empower residents to affect change in their neighborhoods through physical presence and innovative programming.

Over the course of one year, recipients will be expected to:

  • Participate in quarterly meetings for professional and peer development towards project implementation.
  • Finalize project metrics based on the type of programming.
  • Develop a final report with outcomes, a how-to guide, and lessons on improving community development to be used by the next year’s grant recipients.

“We’re looking for organizations that are willing to collaborate with their neighborhood businesses, residents, schools, local government and other nonprofits to create solutions to the problems that are most important to them,” said Terry Rhadigan, executive director of Communications Operations and Corporate Giving at GM.
