About this grant

This grant will provide funds to the Foundation for the Uptown Reinvestment Corporation to acquire several parcels across from the Great Lakes Technology Centre. The acquisition is part of the city of Flint’s overall strategy to improve the South Saginaw Street corridor between Atherton and Hemphill roads. The two structures on the property will be removed, and the site will be converted to green space, providing Saginaw Street access to the city-owned Windiate Park. The grantee will provide the grant funds to its supported organization, the Uptown Reinvestment Corporation, which intends to utilize the funds to purchase the property.
