About this grant

This grant will provide funds to support public safety enforcement and traffic control activities for festivals and events primarily in the downtown Flint area. Free and low-cost events are very important to the vitality of the city and the people who live here. Public safety is an essential component of the success of the festivals that take place in Flint and attract thousands of exhibitors and participants. The city of Flint is not in a financial position to provide the necessary additional police services due to a decline in municipal revenues.
