DETROIT (AP) - The Kresge Foundation is scheduled to announce grants for 18 projects supporting Detroit neighborhoods.

Nonprofits receiving the funding through the Kresge Innovative Projects: Detroit will be announced April 1. The groups will receive $1.6 million to begin or continue their efforts.

Kresge President and CEO Rip Rapson has said the foundation can help nonprofits “deliver more and larger projects.”

Troy-based Kresge launched the 3-year, $5 million program in October. It seeks to advance the Detroit Future City plan for long-term city and neighborhood revitalization. The Detroit Future City strategic framework was made public in January 2013 after two years of research and community input. It is considered a 50-year blueprint for the city.
