FCA Invests Nearly $700,000 To Re-imagine Detroit's East Side Communities


...our triple bottom line, offering social, environmental and economic benefits to eastside residents. FCA is enabling us to complete our vision for this space."


FCA also donated 20,000 face masks to the community leaders. It is part of the automaker's ongoing efforts to ensure that Detroiters stay safe and play a role in slowing the spread of COVID-19.


FCA's commitment to Detroit is reflected in its decision to make the largest investment in the city's history---$2.5 billion---into the city's east side. In addition to the Dec. 21 announcement, FCA has already made other significant investments in Detroit's east side, including: 


  • $4 million to build an education-career pathway for students and residents with the creation of a Manufacturing Career Academy at Southeastern High School
  • $5.8 million in state funding to workforce development and training
  • $1.8 million for the home repair grant program
  • $1.4 million for various environmental projects throughout the east side


Detroit City Councilmember André Spivey, who represents this eastside district, said, "Eastside pride has motivated our community for generations. FCA's presence and partnership reaffirms that our community matters and it's a great place to live."
