About this grant

This grant will provide funds to support public safety enforcement and traffic patrolling at festivals in downtown Flint. Public safety policing is an essential component of the success of the festivals that take place in the downtown Flint area and attract thousands of exhibitors and festival goers. The City of Flint is not in a financial position to provide the necessary additional police services due to a decline in municipal revenues.
