2017-2018 Hardest Hit Areas Planned Use Of Federal Funds In The City Of Detroit
By Richard C. Clement
The following map shows the Hardest Hit Fund (HHF) zones where the city is planning to spend
its federal allocation of fund money. The city is constantly pursuing additional
federal funds to allow it to further expand these HHF zones to include more
neighborhoods. By law funds can only be spent on federally-designated areas
of the City.Under this program, Detroit
can demolish publicly-owned residential buildings (four units or fewer) that
are in poor or structurally-deficient condition, and are negatively impacting
neighborhoods.The City also conducts emergency demolitions of privately-owned residential buildings if Detroit building officials determine they pose an immediate threat to public safety, as well as the demolition of vacant and dangerous commercial structures.
