About this grant

Court Street Village Non-Profit Housing Corporation was created in 1986 to construct, maintain and preserve housing for low-income families in five neighborhoods surrounding downtown Flint. The project works to assist residents to create a comprehensive neighborhood agenda along with a broad-based constituency and leadership group to advocate for the agenda.Funding will support efforts to work with residents in enforcing existing policies that are beneficial to Flint neighborhoods and advocating for new policies when needed. Objectives include developing a playscape in the Central Park neighborhood; launching an interchange beautification project near the I-475 and Lapeer/Court Street area; revitalizing the Oak Lawn neighborhood; and encouraging new and compatible businesses for the professional and residential community in the West Court Street area.Recent accomplishments included developing or rehabilitating three large apartment complexes and improving the market value and stability of the Fairfield Village neighborhood; creating a neighborhood preservation plan for the Central Park neighborhood; and using Community Block Grant funds to rehabilitate 20 homes in Court Street Village.
