About this grant

This grant will provide support to the Foundation for the Uptown Reinvestment Corporation to renovate Cummings Elementary School as part of an effort to expand early childhood education programming within Flint. The school will open in fall 2016 through a partnership with Flint Community Schools, the University of Michigan-Flint, and the Genesee Intermediate School District, that will provide up to 220 children, ages birth to five years, with critical early childhood education opportunities. Expanding the number of high quality, early childhood education slots has become an urgent priority as a result of the Flint water crisis.
