SAFE Mini-Grants Available for Greater Downtown Detroit
The SAFE mini-grant program is designed to empower residents to organize, plan for, and create a better quality of life in their neighborhoods. Focused on crime and safety activities, SAFE provides supplemental financial assistance to community-based organizations for resident-initiated vacant property maintenance and neighborhood security efforts. Grant awards typically range between $1,000 – $5,000.
The Fall 2012 SAFE mini-grant round is supplemental to the 2012 Spring/Summer SAFE mini-grant round. For this round of funding, mini grants are restricted to community-based organizations located and/or operating in the Greater Downtown area of Detroit bounded by Clairmont to the north, the Detroit River to the south, Linwood to the west and E. Grand Blvd to the east. All funded projects must benefit communities located in the Greater Downtown Detroit area specifically.
