The Detroit Future City (DFC) Implementation Office is thrilled to announce its 2017 class of Field Guide Mini-Grant recipients! Ten Detroit-based, community organizations have been awarded a share of $65,000 in mini-grants to implement lot designs from the Field Guide to Working with Lots to help accelerate vacant land revitalization in Detroit. This is the second year of the DFC Field Guide Mini-Grant program.
In addition to offering funding to help grantees achieve their visions, the DFC Implementation Office is providing technical assistance through a partnership with Keep Growing Detroit, a nonprofit that promotes food sovereignty in Detroit and educates and empowers residents around land use, and ioby, a crowdfunding platform for small-scale community projects.
