Knight Foundation grant to help project amplify Detroit voices

To help Detroit leaders better craft programs and policies that respond to community needs, the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation has awarded $761,000 to help University of Michigan researchers collect and report Detroit residents’ opinions on the city’s most pressing and interesting policy issues.

The information U-M researchers are collecting will be used by city officials, nonprofits, business leaders and philanthropies to inform program development, guide investments in physical spaces and craft public policies that better reflect the interests of Detroit residents.
