About this grant

The Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan launched the New Economy Initiative to speed the transition of southeast Michigan to the new knowledge-based economy. Since its inception in 2007, this philanthropic collaborative has provided grants and developed partnerships to support economic development infrastructure, innovative enterprises, and educational programs that prepare adults for the new economy. This grant increase will provide continued support for the initiative’s second phase, which emphasizes creating new enterprises, attracting capital, and generating jobs through innovation and entrepreneurship.
