Posted Friday, September 27th 2013 @ 12pm

(Detroit, MI)  --  Senior officials with the Obama administration will reportedly announce nearly $300-million in grants for the city of Detroit during a meeting with state and local leaders on Friday.  Many of the funds have been awarded to the city in the past years, but the White House is now speeding up the delivery of the money.  The grants include more than $100-million for removal of blighted buildings, nearly $140-million for transit upgrades and $30-million for public safety.  The meeting, which will be held at Wayne State University, is one in a series of discussions since the city of Detroit filed for bankruptcy.
