MCR SUPPORTS KIP:D+

    Kresge Innovative Projects: Detroit Plus (KIP:D+) is a unique grant program that provides Detroit-area nonprofits with resources to help them dream, design, and build innovative projects in their communities.

    Michigan Community Resources supports KIP:D+ by walking alongside grant applicants from project ideation to grant submission. Once grantees are selected, MCR facilitates tailored cohort experiences that support granted organizations throughout their KIP:D+ term.
