About this grant
This grant will enable the Flint SOUP Community Funded Micro-grant Program to continue operations and provide more opportunities for Flint’s underserved residents to participate in entrepreneurship. Founded in 2012, Flint SOUP is a project of the United Way of Genesee County. The program has held more than 30 micro-grant competitions where creators and entrepreneurs can obtain small amounts of financial support and technical assistance to invest in their ideas. While the program is designed to support entrepreneurship, it simultaneously fosters community engagement and resident participation.
