About this grant

This renewal grant to the United Way of Genesee County will support the Flint National Service Accelerator Initiative, which is part of a continuum of volunteer and service opportunities for the community. The initiative has leveraged over $4 million in local, state, and federal resources to increase the number of national service members providing direct service and capacity building personnel to Flint area organizations. This grant provides funds for a civic engagement manager to implement the program which includes capacity building for local organizations seeking national service members; advising the Flint National Service Accelerator Fund housed at the Community Foundation of Greater Flint; and providing recruitment, training, and support to members and host sites.
