This program area is designed to respond to critical opportunities and/or issues that have the potential to significantly improve the quality of life in the Flint area.
Objectives for Special Initiatives
Grantmaking under this objective varies based on the local context, current needs and the availability of funds.
We seek flexibility to respond to critical needs, seize special opportunities, leverage other resources and incubate new program areas in the Flint community. We are making grants:
- To support promising local efforts that can move the community forward.
- For projects that connect national best practices with grantees in Flint and Genesee County.
- That focus on specific, unforeseen needs of the community.
