NeighborHUB is a collaborative effort between General Motors and the Detroit Regional Chamber designed to empower residents to affect change in their neighborhoods.
Together, they provide grants to nonprofits and small businesses working in communities throughout Detroit, Highland Park, and Hamtramck.
The program recognizes the need to support small businesses as important foundations for neighborhoods, especially in traditionally underinvested small business corridors.
Now entering its fifth year of funding neighborhood-focused projects in 2023, NeighborHUB will provide $500,000 in grants and additional consulting and support services to recipients to ensure that projects are successful and sustainable. So far the program has awarded 44 grants totaling over $1 million to community nonprofits and small businesses that have created and enhanced spaces designed to foster collaboration, change, and positively impact their neighborhoods.
The core belief behind the NeighborHUB program is that the residents and stakeholders of Detroit’s neighborhoods know better than anyone else what their community needs. The program lets those closest to the neighborhood, such as nonprofits, block clubs, and small business owners, dictate and design projects and spaces that directly address those needs and make the most significant impact.
