Program areas at DDP

Clean downtown - the project aims to maintain a high standard of cleanliness for downtown detroit by providing daily cleanup in the area within the downtown freeway system and neighboring districts. Uniformed goodwill industries workers sweep streets and power-wash sidewalks, clear trash, and remove graffiti to keep the city clean and inviting.

Detroit creative partnership - the downtown detroit partnership accepted a fiduciary role for the Michigan economic development corporation's Michigan film and digital media office in 2017 to manage their creative chamber initiative. The creative chamber pilot program works directly with the local business community in detroit and charges them with the task of engaging their local creatives to address the industry segregation that is apparent across the state and within state government. Since 2018, the detroit creative partnership has spurred conversations surrounding the next steps for detroit's creative economy and funded projects that are in line with this vision.

Detroit experience factory (dxf) - originally a program under the former d:hive program, dxf provides experiences through interactive tours and innovative resources to help newcomers and locals alike get more connected to the people, places and projects in detroit.
