Celebrate inspiration and transformation in Detroit

First established in 2001, the Detroit Community Development Awards was created to honor the hardworking residents and organizations whose vision and leadership were transforming their communities into good places to live, do business, work and raise families. Their work has blossomed into bright signs of economic recovery, the resurgence of safe and healthy neighborhoods, and hope on of the faces of those people who call Detroit home.

Each year, we honor the heroes in every neighborhood - community leaders, small business owners, real estate developers and other whose vision, tenacity and hard work are transforming neighborhoods into better places to live, work, do business and raise families. The Detroit Community Development Awards is hosted by Detroit LISC, Community Development Advocates of Detroit (CDAD), and Michigan Community Resources.


Save the Date! The 2016 Detroit Community Development Awards will be held on Tuesday, October 18, 2016 - please join us again at Cobo Center for an evening of inspiration from our Detroit residents and changemakers. Ticket information is coming soon!

Nominations are now open for the 2016 Awards! Please download the form here. Contact for more information and for sponsorship information.
