Living Cities: Integration Initiative
Living Cities resources will help Detroit leverage extensive local and national philanthropic and federal government support, increase focused investment along the Corridor, provide capital to a frozen market, and critical projects to move forward. Funding will support the initiative’s work to stabilize neighborhoods adjacent to the Corridor. Data Driven Detroit has been asked to collaborate and will be primarily supporting data systems change. Collaboration between The University Cultural Center Association (UCCA), The Kresge Foundation, and The Skillman Foundation are coordinating the effort in partnership with Michigan State Housing Development Authority, the City of Detroit, NCB Capital Impact, Vanguard Community Development Corporation and major anchor institutions, including the Detroit Medical Center, Henry Ford Health System, and Wayne State University.
