About Us

Detroit Means Business

Dear Detroit Business Owners,

Thank you for your continued commitment to our great city. As we move through the COVID-19 crisis, the City of Detroit is committed to making sure you have all the information, resources and support you need to reopen your business safely and successfully, as soon as the Governor issues the approval. To help you prepare, I’m proud to announce the launch of our Detroit Means Business online resource hub. Here you can access everything you will need, from personalized technical assistance to small business loans and help obtaining personal protective equipment (PPE). These are uncertain times, but together we will come through this – just as Detroiters always do – stronger than ever.

Mayor Michael E. Duggan
