About this grant

This renewal grant provides partial support for the Genesee Area Focus Fund and its supported organization, the Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce, to deliver economic development and education and training services to the Flint area and build Flint’s economic resilience to recover from the Flint water crisis.
