Detroit program pairs new businesses with vacant spaces
Reprinted from Detroit Free Press
A new, five-year program to pair up entrepreneurs and property owners looking to repopulate Detroit with small businesses kicked off today with pledges of $2 million a year in grants to encourage redevelopment of vacant commercial space across the city.
The Motor City Match program will award $500,000 in grants quarterly to building owners and small-business startups, a key part of Mayor Mike Duggan’s 2013 campaign pledge to foster growth and jobs in neighborhood storefronts long vacant amid years of business flight from Detroit.
