The Grandmont Rosedale Development Corporation (GRDC) is a non-profit, community based organization dedicated to preserving and revitalizing the Grandmont Rosedale communities of northwest Detroit. We organize a wide range of community improvement programs designed to help our community prosper as a place to live, work and play.

Our Programs

Home Buyer Program – We acquire vacant and dilapidated houses and transform them into fully renovated homes. These homes are sold to new families that will own and care for them for years to come.
