Impact Summary from the Nonprofit

The Suburbs Alliance has helped lead a dramatic shift toward intergovernmental cooperation among urban communities in southeast Michigan.  Our innovative and award-winning programs provide new avenues for collaborative approaches to regional challenges.  Our Redevelopment Ready Communities (TM), recently acquired by the State of Michigan, was the first to benchmark and assess city practices fostering Smart Growth redevelopment.  We jointly manage the Southeast Michigan Regional Energy Office -- the nation's first regional governmental institution to address municipal energy efficiency and renewable energy management.  Our Millennial Mayors Congress is joining emerging leaders with veteran policy makers to find new ways to build a region that better attracts and retains young professionals.  Via these programs in 2010-11, the Suburbs Alliance brought more than $30M in new project funding directly to Detroit and 30 of its inner-ring suburbs to improve the quality of life and sustainability of their neighborhoods and residents.
