Challenge Brief


Read the full Michigan Central Station Challenge Brief here, which includes important information on the Challenge Question, Opportunity Areas, Evaluation Criteria, and Supplemental Resources.

The Opportunity

The Challenge’s goal is to identify opportunities to create immediate benefit for residents, workers, and visitors of the Michigan Central Station Impact Area and support long-term improvements to how people get around the surrounding neighborhoods. The Michigan Central Station Impact Area, as defined by the City of Detroit in its Community Benefits Agreement, is pictured below (more information here).

A total of $250,000 in funding is available to test or deploy winning ideas. In order for Ford to consider an application for this Challenge, the project must have a direct benefit on residents, workers, or visitors of the Michigan Central Station Impact Area. Up to five pilots may be selected for funding with this demonstration funding pool. In addition, all Finalists may have their applications reviewed by other groups at Ford. Winners may have the chance to pitch to one of these groups as well.

Terms of the award will be executed via a Statement of Work with the Winner(s), and all promising proposals will be considered for further partnership by Challenge partners.
