February 28, 2012 – Live Detroit Fund
The Live Detroit Fund (LDF) is a rent subsidy program for Next Generation leaders of Detroit to move to the city of Detroit.
The LDF will be administered by CommunityNEXT, a program of the Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit to attract and retain young talent in the region.
Applications open October 15, 2011
Create a neighborhood and community of 25 young adults that will be active in creating a dynamic urban environment in the city of Detroit.
Recipients of the LDF rent subsidy will be required to plan one substantial community event a month that will strengthen the Jewish and larger Detroit communities.
WHY IS THIS IMPORTANT?
CommunityNEXT understands that in order to prevent further brain-drain from the city of Detroit, incentives must be created to re populate and build excitement in the city. The LDF will help provide the initial spark plug to re-populate Detroit and help grow the economic vitality in Detroit.

The LDF will provide up to 25 Next Generation leaders a rent subsidy of $250 per month for up to one year. The Live Detroit Fund will be fundraising throughout the month of August primarily through Do It For Detroit, a series of charity sports tournaments and events being held across the country. Get involved, tell your friends and family, and help rebuild the city that we all love.
