This grant to the Foundation for the Uptown Reinvestment Corporation will enable Hurley Children's Hospital's Pediatric Medical Center to relocate to the new Flint Farmers' Market building in the downtown Flint Health and Wellness District. This move will allow the center to continue its mission of providing state-of-the-art medical services to low-income children. Greater proximity to downtown bus transit options will make critical medical services more accessible to Flint's families, and will facilitate the center's partnership with Michigan State University's College of Human Medicine's pediatric residency program.
The purpose of this grant is to offer support for the Building Excellence, Sustainability and Trust (BEST) Nonprofit Capacity Building project of the United Way of Genesee County, whose mission is to strengthen the nonprofit sector of Flint and Genesee County by providing organizations with nonprofit management information, professional development, capacity building, and technical assistance support. Since its inception in 2003 the project has worked with over 100 Genesee County agencies that have subsequently expanded programs to serve more individuals in need, leveraged new financial and human capital, and collaborated with cross-sector leaders to ensure alignment with community needs.
This grant will support the continued development of the Flint Food Works Commercial Kitchen food business incubator at the Flint Farmers’ Market. The business development facility offers space, entrepreneurial programming, and technical assistance to small food enterprises and other culinary ventures that seek to create products for distribution. The project will be managed by the Foundation for the Uptown Reinvestment Corporation’s supported organization, the Uptown Reinvestment Corporation, which works to improve the quality of life of Flint-area residents through the revitalization of downtown Flint and investments in infrastructures that provide people access to jobs, food, healthcare, and other essential services.
The Mott Foundation, through its four grantmaking programs, funds a variety of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and projects throughout the United States, which together receive about three quarters of the Foundation’s grant funds each year.
