Project. A collaboration with the New Economy Initiative (NEI), this is a pilot project that infuses
selected businesses with capital ($25K grants) and is pairing that with coordinated coaching and

ProsperUs on behalf of The Kresge Foundation in partnership with NEI. Our CDO partners include
Grandmont Rosedale Development Corporation, Jefferson East, Inc., Live6 Alliance, Midtown Detroit,
Inc., NW Goldberg Cares, Osborn Neighborhood Alliance, and Southwest Detroit Business Association.

Target Outcomes

ProsperUs and NEI are thrilled for this opportunity for collaboration with partners throughout the city.

neighborhoods in Detroit as well as other cities nationally. To support this aspiration, this project will:

  • Create valuable datasets and associated analysis;
  • Value multiple “ways of knowing” by utilizing multiple evaluation methods;
  • Develop storytelling collateral (interviews, recordings, video, photography); and
  • Contribute to the overall ethos of collaboration and community.
