About this grant

This grant will provide funds to support public safety enforcement and traffic patrolling at the Back to the Bricks festival in downtown Flint this August. Public safety policing is an essential component of the success of the festival, which this year is anticipated to attract more than 500,000 exhibitors and festival goers. The City of Flint has traditionally absorbed the cost of police and traffic control services for the event, but is no longer able to provide these services free of charge due to a decline in municipal revenues.
