DETROIT (AP) - The Community Foundation for Southeast Michigan has approved nearly $22 million in grants for organizations including the Detroit Historical Society, the Detroit RiverFront Conservancy and The Autism Alliance of Michigan.

The funding was announced Thursday.

The grants benefit nonprofits across seven southeast Michigan counties and support programs ranging from the arts, education and health to economic development and the environment. The Community Foundation this year expects to exceed its 2013 total of $50 million in grants.

The Historical Society is getting $30,000 over three years for digitizing collections; the RiverFront Conservancy is getting $100,000 for an environmentally friendly parking lot for Gabriel Richard Park; and the Autism Alliance is getting $50,000 for a pilot project for families.
