NEIGHBORHOOD EXCHANGE Green StormWater Infrastructure Mini-Grants

Deadline: June 5, 2017 by 5 PM

2017 NEx Green Stormwater Infrastructure Mini-Grants

Michigan Community Resources will provide up to $5,000 to five community organizations through our new Neighborhood Exchange Green Stormwater Infrastructure Mini-Grant Program. In addition to the grant to support small projects in Detroit that support green stormwater infrastructure, organizations will also receive technical assistance and project management support from the MCR staff. Funding for the NEx Green Stormwater Infrastructure Mini-Grants was generously provided by the Erb  Family Foundation. Click here to download the application. 

 2017 NEx Green Stormwater Infrastructure Ambassador Stipends

Three groups will each be given $1,000 to host educational workshops that showcases a previously installed GSI project. This component is meant to lift up the good work that groups are already doing, provide some additional funding that may be used for ongoing maintenance and education, and to support peer to peer learning and connections among community groups interested in GSI. Since one of the primary purposes of the mini-grant program is to increase the number of demonstrable GSI projects throughout Detroit, this is an innovative approach to recognize and support the work of green stewards and encourage people to visit the sites and experience them in person.
