About this grant

This grant will provide support to the Genesee Area Focus Fund for the creation of an Energy Council for the City of Flint. A diverse group of community stakeholders (universities, schools, government, and business) will convene regularly in 2010 to develop ideas, identify projects, and seek funding to further the sustainability agenda of the Flint area. In June 2010, a delegation will travel to Leksand, Sweden to participate in a global conference on the green economy. Representatives will also visit the city of Linköping for discussions with government and business officials about economic development and sustainability strategies.
