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 national 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.
