About this grant

To ensure the economic health of the downtown business district, the Flint Downtown Development Authority must increase and maintain a significant level of patronage, both from local residents and out-county visitors. The grantee plans to provide high quality entertainment that will encourage more foot traffic and draw new visitors downtown. This renewal grant will help achieve this goal by funding the creation of eight new festivals, as well as supporting key annual festivals, such as Bikes on the Bricks and monthly festivals like Art Walk.
