PURPOSE

Development is happening. Let's do it right.

We invite neighborhood-based groups, including (but not limited to) block clubs, neighborhood associations, resident groups, and community organizations to apply to participate in the second round of Eco-D. We are committed to expanding to two neighborhoods in 2018 and provide the resources necessary to launch your neighborhood into the next phase of its sustainable development. Become part of a growing network of “green” communities, committed to building a healthy and vibrant place for all.

WHAT IS ECO-D?

Eco-D is a collaborative initiative that looks to foster neighborhood-level sustainability, and support Detroit, Hamtramck, and Highland Park neighborhoods to become green neighborhoods. An Eco-D neighborhood is one that demonstrates a commitment to green, community-driven development and that prioritizes robust community engagement and equitable decision making across a range of projects. Projects are specifically chosen to enhance the three priority areas: equity, climate protection, and resilience.

 

Building on the work performed in collaboration with the inaugural two Eco-D neighborhoods, HOPE Village and West Village, we seek to expand the program’s reach. Let’s partner to build and implement your green, community-driven vision for your neighborhood!

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Technical Assistance

The collaborators who formed Eco-D, as well as local and national partners, will be providing an array of sustainability-related services. The two selected applicants will be able to choose from a variety of services listed below which range from energy and water conservation workshops, youth programs, community tree planting, open space planning, community engagement, and more.

 

Peer Learning

Neighborhoods in the program – regardless of whether they are among the two selected - will have access to shared-peer learning and exchange opportunities where you can learn from others experiencing similar challenges or victories! This will include workshops, networking sessions, and other community events. These will be unique opportunities to learn from other neighborhoods’ efforts and connect around available resources.
