Most of the 11 recipients in the Financially Distressed Cities, Villages and Townships Grant Program are in Metro Detroit.
Lincoln Park received the largest amount, $342,500, to boost the design phase for a new facility housing its Police Department and 25th District Court, which serves the city, Ecorse and River Rouge, Michigan Treasurer Rachael Eubanks said Friday.
Four cities received multiple grants.
