Help the Gordie Howe International Bridge project team invest up to $1.5 million in new programming initiatives. The project team seeks your help to prioritize programming investments for the host communities of Sandwich/west Windsor and Delray/Southwest Detroit. 

Funding is available through the project Community Benefits Plan, which includes the Neighbourhood Infrastructure Strategy, representing a $20 million investment into the Sandwich/west Windsor and Delray/Southwest Detroit communities. Approximately $5.1 million of the $20 million is currently available and a portion of this funding will be assigned to high-value programming for the host communities for 2024. 

The project team and community stakeholders have determined a shortlist of potential programming investment areas and need the communities’ help prioritizing what areas of the shortlist are most important to the host communities.  

The survey closed on Wednesday July 12, 2023, at 4 p.m. and results will inform future Community Benefits programming investments in Sandwich/west Windsor and Delray/Southwest Detroit.

Stay tuned! After the survey closes, the project team will announce a Call for Programming Proposals, where organizations can request funding for their programs that are within the prioritized areas of investment and directly benefit Sandwich/west Windsor and/or Delray/Southwest Detroit communities.

More information about the Call for Programming Proposals will be available in July 2023. 

You can expect to learn more about the organizations and initiatives selected to receive Community Benefits funding in early 2024, following review of the proposals by the project team this fall.
