An initiative to spur and support transformative projects that tap the vision and creativity of Detroiters to improve the quality of life in their neighborhoods.
In 2014, Kresge’s Detroit Program launched Kresge Innovative Projects: Detroit (KIP:D) to support nonprofits in their work to improve the quality of life and strengthen the fabric of community. To date, KIP:D has committed $11 million to advance resident priorities through transformative projects that build on the assets and distinctive attributes of neighborhoods. In 2019, the initiative’s principles were adapted by Kresge’s American Cities Program to create Kresge Innovative Projects: Memphis (KIP: M) in that city.
