Built in 2020, the Detroit Neighborhood Housing Compact collected information on the various residential loans and assistance programs throughout the City of Detroit and Wayne County.

Property Improvement Programs and Utility Assistance

This report is the product of an unprecedented community-led tax foreclosure prevention effort called Neighbor to Neighbor, a project inspired by the legacy and mission of Motor City Mapping. Neighbor to Neighbor sought to:
1. Investigate the human costs of tax foreclosure.
2. Test a model for community-led early intervention to
prevent tax foreclosures.
3. Inform solutions that can address the tax foreclosure.
As a result of efforts to increase home buying and mortgages, new resources are available. Down payment programs are offered by several sources in the Detroit market. This paper focuses on two questions: What else can be done to restore the home buying ecosystem in Detroit? And what can be done to align the resources and organizational effort to restore the home buying ecosystem?
This matrix is intended to simply outline a framework to examine property tax foreclosure prevention interventions, provide an initial list and summary of interventions either implemented or proposed by a wide range of
organizations, and identify where these interventions may fall in the property taxation and foreclosure process. The observations reflected in this matrix do not constitute or include legal advice and all interventions and observations provided by CCP are subject to the review and guidance of local counsel.
