This grant will support the Flint SOUP Community Funded Micro-grant Program. Funding will allow the program to expand its capacity to provide more opportunities for Flint residents to express their creative ideas, connect to the city’s broader entrepreneurial network, and offer technical assistance to innovators to help advance their concepts. Founded in 2012, Flint SOUP is a project of the United Way of Genesee County and has managed more than 30 business competitions where creators and entrepreneurs can obtain small amounts of financial support for their projects. While the program is designed to support business ideas, it simultaneously fosters community engagement and resident participation, which are needed after the water crisis.
