HARDEST HIT FUNDS
On August 20, 2013, Governor Snyder announced that Detroit will receive $52.2 million of the total sum of Hardest Hit Funds from the United States Department of Treasury for demolition of residential structures in Michigan. The Hardest Hit Fund demolition program is intended to stabilize lower-vacancy neighborhoods and requires public ownership of the structure before it is demolished.
