Join American Black Journal and BridgeDetroit for a virtual town hall on Wednesday, 11/17 at 12 p.m.
It’s been nearly four months since the City approved its plan to spend $826 million in American Rescue Plan Act funding, a historic amount of federal support that many hope will tackle some of Detroit’s toughest problems. Since that time, $53.6 million in contracts have been approved and a program to fix 1,000 roofs has been launched. American Black Journal and BridgeDetroit partnered to understand Detroiters priorities for the influx of federal dollars. Join Stephen Henderson as he moderates this important conversation.
