About this grant

This grant provides support to the Crim Fitness Foundation to continue to serve as the lead agency for the community schools model in Flint. The fourth year of implementing the community schools strategy will involve expanding the depth and impact of programs at all 11 Flint Community Schools district buildings. The community schools strategy will help make available the strong, research-based educational and enrichment opportunities that are important interventions for individuals from birth to young adulthood who may have been exposed to lead, as those interventions can help mitigate the long-term impacts of such exposure.
