Arts Education in Michigan: Fostering Creativity and Innovation
Since it was established in 1926, the Mott Foundation has maintained a deep commitment to its hometown of Flint, Michigan. This longstanding support reflects the Foundation’s belief that through involved people partnering with strong organizations, the greater Flint community can face its challenges and create a more vibrant and sustainable future.
This grantmaking, done primarily through the Foundation’s Flint Area program, includes support for educational and cultural programs; economic and downtown development; job training; and emergency and human services.
East Harlem Employment Service's STRIVE program provides employment training, placement, and support to inner-city residents seeking private sector jobs. STRIVE prepares participants for the workforce through a demanding three-week workshop which focuses on the attitudinal prerequisites for successful entry-level employment. Replication of the STRIVE program in Flint is one of three grants in the Flint Workforce Development cluster.
This grant will provide funding to the Greater Flint Health Coalition to implement the Flint Healthcare Sector Initiative. The purpose of the initiative is to create sustainable employment and promote career advancement for low-income Flint residents by working with health industry employers to restructure their hiring, retention, and promotional practices for entry-level healthcare employees. The Greater Flint Health Coalition will continue to work closely with the National Economic Development and Law Center, who developed this project with a three-year research and planning grant from the Mott Foundation.
This renewal grant provides partial support to the Center for Community Progress to further its mission of combating the negative effects of property vacancy and abandonment in post-industrial urban areas. Headquartered in Flint and with offices in Washington, D.C., the grantee addresses these issues at the federal, state and local levels through a combination of research, policy reform and advocacy, technical assistance and capacity building, and communications programs.
