NeighborHUB Extends Detroit’s Revitalization Beyond Downtown

Detroit’s renaissance is dependent on the future sustainability of its neighborhoods. The issues facing Detroiters vary from neighborhood to neighborhood including: limited access to transportation, limited access to grocery and other stores, blight, crumbling infrastructure, foreclosure, and a lack of community trust.

Who better to tend to the needs of the neighborhoods than the nonprofits that serve them?

The NeighborHUB community grant program is a collaborative effort between General Motors (GM) and the Detroit Regional Chamber designed to empower residents to affect change in their neighborhoods through physical presence and innovative programming. Any registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization working in Detroit, Hamtramck, or Highland Park can apply for one of five grants of up to $30,000 and additional business support. To be considered for funding, organizations must identify a neighborhood need, develop programming focused on relieving this need, and identify an accessible physical space to house programming.

If you have any questions, please contact Devon O’Reilly at doreilly@detroitchamber.com or 313-596-0335.
