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.
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.
This renewal grant provides partial support for the Genesee Area Focus Fund and its supported organization, the Flint and Genesee Chamber of Commerce, to continue to deliver economic development and education and training services to the greater Flint area. The Flint and Genesee Chamber of Commerce aims to increase business investment, industry diversification, and job creation through its business attraction, retention and expansion services, and entrepreneurial assistance activities. In addition, the organization helps to enhance the area’s economic competitiveness and quality of life by providing the community with workforce education, training programs, and special initiative projects.
