About this grant

North Flint Reinvestment Corporation is a nonprofit community development corporation focused on battling economic and environmental injustices. Established in 2011 by the Foss Avenue Baptist Church’s leadership, the grantee takes a place-based, holistic approach to revitalizing the severely distressed neighborhood in which it is located. This grant will support the development of the North Flint Food Market to be located on the north side of Flint near the intersection of Pierson and Clio Roads. Food scarcity is a long-standing and well-documented concern for those living in this part of town and many residents have limited transportation options for shopping elsewhere.
