Neighborhood Support


If you are a community-based organization working to strengthen neighborhood development in Detroit, the Neighborhood Support Services Division may be able to provide technical assistance and support for your projects. Our primary goals are to develop supportive relationships with community-based organizations and to structure divisional programs to reflect City strategies and target community needs.

The Neighborhood Support Services Division provides these key services for community-based organizations:

  • Management and monitoring of public services and homeless activities associated with the Community Development Block Grant (CDBG)
  • Management and monitoring of homeless activities associated with Emergency Shelter Grant (ESG)
  • Facilitation and implementation of CDBG and ESG activities
  • Promotion of citizen participation in development areas by providing administrative support for Citizen's District Councils (CDCs).
