About this grant

As investments in downtown Flint progress, it has become apparent that newcomers and longtime residents alike are finding it difficult to find the way to their desired destinations. This is true whether they are travelling by car, bus, bicycle, or on foot. Flint needs a comprehensive and easy-to-use system to address the mobility needs of visitors and residents. The Foundation for the Uptown Reinvestment Corporation will provide the grant funds to its supported organization, the Uptown Reinvestment Corporation, to develop such a long-term and comprehensive wayfinding plan for Flint’s central business district and surrounding institutional destinations. In addition to developing such a plan, the grant will also cover early implementation costs.
