About this grant
This renewal grant will support the Flint Community Schools’ Summer Tot Lot Program, an early education program for at-risk children ages four and five that provides them with the academic and social skills necessary for future educational success. The Summer Tot Lot Program has been a part of the Flint Community Schools’ summer education programming since the late 1930s and addresses the academic, social, and nutrition/fitness development of children, while providing their caregivers with parenting support, which has become even more important with the issues surrounding the city’s water system.
