About this grant

Through property tax foreclosure, the Genesee County Land Bank Authority owns more than 2,100 vacant residential lots throughout Genesee County, with the majority of the lots located in the city of Flint. Through its Clean and Green program, the authority partners with community-based organizations to maintain these vacant lots and design various neighborhood greening projects. Participants in the program gain both leadership and job skills. This grant provides partial support to the program, which aims to encourage community residents’ long-term ownership in the maintenance and beautification of lots within their neighborhoods.
