Detroit, Michigan



The organization champions local and national collaboration to advance environmental justice, achieve sustainable redevelopment and foster safe, healthy communities through innovative policy, education and workforce initiatives. This grant is being used to develop plans for the Southwest Detroit Green Buffers project, which creates buffer zones between residential and industrial areas to improve environmental quality and public health.
