About this grant

The Greater Flint Health Coalition was established in 1992 to improve the health status of Genesee County residents and to improve the quality and cost-effectiveness of the healthcare delivery system.This grant will enable the coalition’s Flint Healthcare Employment Opportunities Project to work with health industry employers to restructure their hiring, retention and promotional practices for healthcare employees. In addition, the project will continue to enroll new clients, provide career paths for existing clients and participate in regional economic development initiatives.The project recently was selected by the U.S. Department of Labor to participate in a 13-county initiative designed to help diversify the regional economy.
