Through the efforts of Senator Carl Levin, the Old Tiger Stadium Conservancy (OTSC) was awarded a grant from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) in part to promote commercial redevelopment in the area of the former Tiger Stadium Site. With a portion of the HUD grant, the OTSC seeks to assist entrepreneurs and small business owners, by encouraging economically sound and sustainable developments.
As of March 7, 2013 the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development finalized the release of funds for commercial redevelopment in Corktown, Detroit, Michigan. This has allowed the first round of projects approved by OTSC to be submitted to HUD for funding. As this process occurs, OTSC will be accepting new applications for a second round of submissions. The deadline for the second round applicants is 5 pm Friday July 12, 2013. Please visit our Apply page for more details.

Some of you might ask, what is the Old Tiger Stadium Conservancy (OTSC)? Isn’t the stadium long gone? While the physical structure may be demolished, the spirit of Old Tiger Stadium lives on.
The Old Tiger Stadium Conservancy (OTSC) is dedicated to the sustainable redevelopment of the Old Tiger Stadium Site and the revitalization of the Corktown area.
The OTSC values:
• Economic Development

• Balanced Community
• Tax Base Generation
• Historic Preservation
• Preservation & Revitalization of Corktown
• Entrepreneurial and Small Business Development
Through the efforts of Senator Carl Levin, the OTSC was awarded a grant from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development in part to promote commercial redevelopment in the area of the former Tiger Stadium Site. With a portion of the HUD grant, the OTSC seeks to assist entrepreneurs and small business owners, by encouraging economically sound and sustainable developments. Such developments will result in more jobs, increased tax base, improved storefronts, and contribute to the revitalization of the Corktown Commercial District.
