Detroit getting $50 million to fight blight
The following is an excerpt:
Detroit — Michigan is splitting $75 million in federal funding between 12 cities, including nearly $50 million for Detroit, in its latest battle to reduce blight in the state, the governor’s office announced Tuesday.
The federal aid has been a key part of Detroit Mayor Mike Duggan’s anti-blight effort as the city has worked toward exiting bankruptcy. The city has more than 40,000 vacant structures.
