About this grant

In response to a challenge from Michigan Gov. Jennifer M. Granholm, the Community Foundation of Greater Flint launched the Community Challenge in June 2003, to coordinate a local process to create a strategic community vision for the greater Flint area. This grant will partially support the second phase of the challenge.Funding will support objectives that include identifying additional stakeholders not already involved and encouraging them to participate; developing strategies to achieve identified critical outcomes; integrating the results from all the identified outcomes; and periodically meeting with other critical groups to share information.The Community Foundation of Greater Flint was created in 1988 from a merger between the Flint Public Trust and Flint Area Health Foundation.
