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 assistance as well as loans and grants.
