About this grant

The Village Information Center was established in 1976 and has published hundreds of issues of the “East Village Magazine”. “East Village Magazine” is a monthly nonprofit magazine written by and for Flint residents and nonprofit groups that focuses on issues directly affecting the quality of life in Flint neighborhoods.
