About this grant
The purpose of this grant is to fund a team of consultants who will support the Flint Future Action Coordination Team organized by Mayor Karen Weaver with the guidance of the Greater Flint Health Coalition. The Flint water crisis has had major public health, education, child and family services, and economic implications throughout the City of Flint. The Flint Future Action Coordination Team will convene the various working groups and stakeholders from the community in developing an organized, long-term response to the many issues created by lead-contaminated water. Consultants will help facilitate these meetings and coordinate activities to ensure collaboration among multiple municipal, state, federal, civic, neighborhood, nonprofit, academic, and private sector organizations working on issues related to the impact of the Flint water crisis.
