Grosse Pointe 2.0

November 10, 2011

A program started by the Grosse Pointe Park Housing Foundation has $250,000 in donations, with more coming, to cover the monthly rent (or part of the rent, with a maximum of $350) for students enrolled at Wayne State University, the College for Creative Studies or the University of Detroit Mercy. The goal is to attract younger residents, fill rental vacancies and also promote renovation in the neighborhood, something that's happening, city officials say. So far at least 50 students are part of the program.
