About this grant

This renewal grant will provide the Flint office of the Local Initiatives Support Corporation with funding to continue the work of transforming distressed neighborhoods into livable communities. With a focus on creating sustainable communities, the grantee provides local organizations with technical assistance and local policy support in addition to loans and grants. During the next year, the grantee will direct additional resources to community development organizations to build their capacity to respond to the adverse effects of the water crisis on neighborhoods, and will support efforts to increase access to healthy foods in underserved areas. It will also expand the outreach of its Financial Opportunity Center, which improves Flint residents’ economic resilience through provision of integrated financial and employment services and public benefits access.
