About this grant
This renewal grant will support the Flint Community Schools’ Summer Tot Lot Program, an early education program for at-risk children ages four and five that provides them with the academic and social skills necessary for future educational success. The Summer Tot Lot Program has been a part of the Flint Community Schools’ summer education programming since the late 1930s and addresses the academic, social, and nutrition/fitness development of children, while providing their caregivers with parenting support. These types of support are especially important for children who may have been exposed to lead during the Flint water crisis.
