About this grant

This grant will provide two years of general purposes support to the American Arab Heritage Council, legally recognized as the American International Forum. In recent years, this organization has developed from a network of volunteers into a nonprofit with permanent staff and has expanded its educational outreach and cultural programs. Activities of the organization include a variety of seminars, educational outreach activities, and services intended for Arab Americans. These programs aim to promote better understanding and tolerance and prevent backlash toward Arab Americans and Muslims in the Flint area.
