About this grant

This grant provides support to the Crim Fitness Foundation to continue to serve as the lead agency for the community education model in Flint. The community education strategy involves increasing the depth and impact of programs at all Flint Community Schools buildings, the International Academy of Flint charter school and the Flint Cultural Center Academy. The central elements of community education that made it so effective in responding to the water crisis — caring relationships, a holistic approach to student and family wellbeing and social emotional supports — remain critical as students begin to emerge from the COVID-19 pandemic.
