About this grant

This grant to United Way of Genesee County will enable Doxa Development to continue facilitating the Flint SOUP Community Funded Micro-Grant Program. Flint SOUP provides opportunities for underserved residents to use entrepreneurship as a viable career pathway. Since 2012, the Flint SOUP program has given creators and entrepreneurs a space where they obtain financial support and technical assistance that will help them to advance their business ideas. While the program is designed to support entrepreneurship, it simultaneously fosters community engagement and resident participation in an economically disadvantaged community.
