Expanding opportunities in America’s cities

Southwest Detroit Business Association Inc.




Established in 1957, the coalition of businesses and community interests is committed to facilitating the continuation and enhancement of a stable, economically healthy Southwest Detroit. Assisted by this two-year grant, the association is reviving a 2.3-mile stretch of the West Vernor Avenue corridor as a thriving commercial district and completing a plan for streetscape improvements. The grant directly leverages other support of the project from the state of Michigan.
