Organizations providing healthy eating, arts, cultural programming and other services to early childhood centers in Detroit will be eligible for funding from the Kresge Foundation.

The Troy-based nonprofit says it will make $3 million in grants available over three years. The funding is part of the foundation's $25 million commitment to support the implementation of Hope Starts Here .

The community framework was developed in partnership with the W.K. Kellogg Foundation to improve early childhood outcomes in Detroit.

Individual organizations that apply can receive up to $300,000 over three years. Grants can be used in a number of ways, including for staff costs, transportation for staff and participants, facilities renovations and parent engagement.

The application period ends Aug. 14. Kresge will announce grant recipients in November.
