The NeighborHUB community grant program will soon re-open its application period for registered 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations located in Detroit, Hamtramck, or Highland Park to apply for grants of up to $30,000 and additional business support.

Given the impacts of COVID-19 on the community, the NeighborHUB grant program introduced new criteria and awards for the 2020-21 cohort:

  • The total amount of grants that will be given out has doubled to $300,000, providing funding for five additional organizations.
  • Small businesses, among the hardest hit financially by the pandemic, can partner with nonprofits that meet the criteria on an application. An example of this would be a small business that wanted to offer space for a project for community programming, gatherings, classes, workshops etc.
  • Eligible projects will be paired with General Motors volunteers who have expertise in areas such as marketing, engineering, law, information technology, etc.
  • PPE supply will also be available all awardees.

About NeighborHUB

NeighborHUB is a collaborative effort between General Motors and the Detroit Regional Chamber designed to empower residents to affect change in their neighborhoods by providing grants to nonprofits and small businesses working in communities throughout Detroit, Highland Park, and Hamtramck.

Now in its fourth year of funding neighborhood-focused projects, NeighborHUB will provide $500,000 in grants this year and additional consulting and support services to recipients of the grants to ensure that projects are successful and sustainable.

This year the program recognized the need to support small businesses, as important foundations for neighborhoods, especially in traditionally underinvested small business corridors. With this year’s grant, the program will have awarded 44 grants totaling over $1 million ($1.19 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 (nonprofits, block clubs, small business owners) dictate and design projects and spaces that directly address those needs and make the most significant impact.
