About this grant

The goal of this project is to develop a collective set of funding and programmatic strategies to support immigrant and refugee communities in southeast Michigan. For the first phase of the project, the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan commissioned a landscape analysis of organizations, services, and funding for immigrants and refugees in the Oakland, Wayne, Macomb, Washtenaw, and Genesee counties. In the second phase, these results will be shared with a broad segment of southeast Michigan residents beyond only immigrant and refugee groups. Through a community engagement process, the project’s funders, implementers, and other interested stakeholders will learn community members’ reactions to the findings, which will feed into the development of a collaborative grantmaking strategy. Established in 1984, the Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan works to enhance the quality of life in southeast Michigan.
