Much of the new development in Detroit has not happened in the city’s neighborhoods.
But now Mayor Mike Duggan wants to invest in small businesses throughout the city.
Duggan announced the Motor City Re-store plan that will help improve the aesthetics of different commercial corridors in the city.
Duggan says small businesses can apply for up to $500,000 in matching grants each quarter.
“And what we want is the businesses who have been here to come forward with their ideas for improving their neighborhoods and we’ll match it,” Duggan said.
