Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

Detroit Economic Growth Association

Detroit, Michigan



The organization is the nonprofit economic-growth arm of the Detroit Economic Growth Corp. and engages in business attraction, urban redevelopment and financing programs. This two-year grant is being used to implement and assess the Soft Stripping Springwells deconstruction pilot, an integrated approach to eliminating residential blight in Detroit by tearing down vacant single-family homes manually and salvaging building materials for reuse or recycling.
