About this grant

This grant will allow the Flint Cultural Center Corporation, in partnership with other cultural center institutions, to provide educational programming to students attending Flint Community Schools and other at-risk students living in the community. Due to the Flint water crisis, additional wraparound programs and educational opportunities are especially important to developing children. Declining school budgets have forced area schools to reduce or eliminate arts and cultural programming from their curriculum, as well as restrict field trips to the Flint Cultural Center to take advantage of the high quality educational programs it offers. Because of Flint’s high poverty rate, many families are not able to afford to take their children to the cultural center. The Flint Cultural Center’s Educational Outreach Program provides students access to various educational programs and activities available from any Flint Cultural Center organization during the 2016-17 school year.
