For over 28 years, CFGF has worked with Flint residents to identify the changes they want to see in their neighborhoods. We know that lasting change happens when residents have resources to drive the kind of change they want to see where they live, work and play. Funding for the Neighborhoods Small Grants Program is made possible by the Charles Stewart Mott Foundation, Ruth Mott Foundation, and CFGF.
The Neighborhoods Small Grants Program supports established and emerging citizen-based groups or organizations in moderate to low-income neighborhoods in and near the City of Flint to develop projects that address pressing issues within their neighborhoods; build alliances with other community institutions; and develop community-based leadership. The intended outcomes of NSGP grants are:
- Community members actively engage in community change efforts
- Community members view themselves as stakeholders that can partner with institutions to address critical issues
- Community members have pride in their neighborhoods and motivation to continue their work
The 2022 Neighborhood Small Grants Program grant application period is from February 1 through March 18.
