The Kresge Foundation announced more than $8 million dollars in new grant commitments over the next three years to support racial justice in its hometown.

This brings funding to 20 organizations and institutions of varied sizes and ages, that range from frontline activism to strengthening economies in neighborhoods of color to supporting small businesses owned by people of color.

The New Economy Initiative will receive $1.25 million to build a network to undergird small businesses in key commercial corridors, with an emphasis on small businesses owned by people of color.
