About this grant

Demonstrating a remarkable community resiliency in the face of economic hardship, faith-based institutions in Flint have made a commitment to respond to the multiple challenges facing families and neighborhoods. Flint Area Congregations Together was incorporated in 2006 as a vehicle to address issues of poverty, violence, inadequate education, blight, and other concerns facing Flint and the region. An affiliate of the PICO National Network, the grantee has 18 dues-paying congregational members. This general purpose grant will provide partial support as the organization pursues its goals and objectives.
