Development and Grants Highlight of the Month
The online form for United States Census 2020 is live as of March 12 – take the census today and be counted!
An accurate Census count is crucial for Detroit. It will help ensure not only fair political representation in Washington, D.C., and Lansing, but also how much federal funding is sent to the City and the State of Michigan for all sorts of programs, from Medicare and Medicaid, schools and Head Start to highway planning and construction, and nutrition and housing assistance for low-income families.
With our partners, we are working to make sure every Detroiter is counted, no matter their age, income, type of residency or immigration status. Thank you to the Ford Foundation, Quicken Loans Community Investment Fund, Kresge Foundation, DTE, General Motors, the Fred A. and Barbara M. Erb Family Foundation, Ford Motor Company Fund, TCF Bank, W.K. Kellogg Foundation, Hudson Webber Foundation, Ralph C. Wilson Jr. Foundation, Wayne Metro, Comcast, Census Equity Fund, McGregor Fund, DMCU, and Independent Bank for their support.
