About this grant

This grant to the United Way of Genesee County will provide operating support for Flintside and Flint Beat, two community-based journalism outlets. Flintside and Flint Beat cover news across the city. Both outlets offer an online publication that focuses on information and stories that highlight important community issues that impact Flint residents. While the editorial teams continue to operate independently, the two media outlets have come together to consolidate back-office operations to create more administrative efficiencies and opportunities for staff recruitment and fundraising.
