About this grant

This grant to the Flint Cultural Center Corporation will provide support for design and development activities to determine the feasibility of a school located on the Flint Cultural Center campus. The Cultural Center organizations currently provide a variety of cultural, educational and instructional programs and activities in the arts and sciences both on site and in area schools. There is interest in determining if a school located on the Cultural Center campus would provide additional avenues for providing high quality educational opportunities for residents in the region. High quality programming is crucial in Flint given its current water crisis because educational and enrichment opportunities are important interventions for individuals from birth to young adulthood to help mitigate the long-term impacts of exposure to lead.
