About this grant

The Levin Center, at Wayne State University Law School, was established to strengthen the integrity, transparency and accountability of public and private institutions by: promoting and supporting bipartisan, fact-based oversight; advancing good governance, particularly with respect to the legislative process; and promoting civil discourse on current issues of public policy. This grant will support the pilot of the People-Center Oversight project in Flint to create a scalable model for building public engagement with the government that will help to address the epidemic of hopelessness, resignation and misinformation that impede reform and pose a threat to our democracy.
