For Developers and Contractors

Notice of Funding Availability

The City of Detroit allocates funds through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to strengthen public-private partnerships in order to achieve the following goals:

  1. Produce mixed-use, mixed-income multifamily housing developments in the city's neighborhoods through both new construction and adaptive reuse of existing structures.
  2. Preserve current affordable housing stock in both public and private sector control and thereby reduce loss of existing well-located affordable housing.
  3. Develop supportive housing for homeless families, individuals, and veterans.
  4. Produce infrastructure to support housing, including entitlement-eligible public improvements such as open space, landscaped areas, and related infrastructure near areas of concentrated housing.
  5. Create a reliable pipeline of these projects for future funding rounds.
  6. Provide opportunities for and support development by first-time, small-scale, community-based organizations/entities.
