DETROIT — “Call it Home,” a $1.6 million grant program, has launched as a partnership between Citizens Bank and Mayor Dave Bing’s Detroit Works Project.

Media Genesis, a Troy-based Internet services firm, collaborated with Citizens Bank and The Detroit Works Project to brand, design and build the “Call it Home” Web site, at http://MyDetroitHome.CitizensBanking.com. Media Genesis also created some of the map signage that was featured at a press conference Monday.

The program offers grants of up to $10,000 for exterior home improvements. When the home improvements are complete, the grant can be reimbursed for 50 percent of the homeowner’s pre-approved project, up to $10,000.
