About this grant
This grant increase will provide additional funding to the Foundation for the Uptown Reinvestment Corporation, a supporting organization of the Uptown Reinvestment Corporation, for completing the redevelopment of the former 1st Source Servall Appliance Parts building located at 630 W. Kearsley Street. The building and adjacent properties will be redeveloped into the new headquarters for the nonprofit Flint River Watershed Coalition and its Kayak Flint rental program. The project furthers the Uptown Reinvestment Corporation’s charitable mission of improving and revitalizing downtown to address the blight and economic stagnancy that has plagued Flint in recent decades.
