This grant increase will provide support to the Foundation for Flint for the construction of an early childhood education facility. The facility is on the property behind Durant-Tuuri-Mott Elementary School. As part of an effort to expand early childhood education programming within Flint, the facility will open in fall 2017 and provide up to 220 children, ages birth to five years, with critical early childhood education opportunities. Expanding the number of high quality, early childhood education slots has become an urgent priority as a result of the Flint water crisis. The Foundation for Flint is a supporting organization of the Community Foundation of Greater Flint established to serve the long-term health and development needs of Flint children and their families.
