$1.2M to fund mobile health clinic in Flint, other work

By  | 

FLINT, Mich. (AP) More than $1.2 million will help fund a mobile health clinic amid Flint's crisis with lead-tainted water, a job training program for at-risk youth and neighborhood improvement projects.

The funding announced Monday is from the Ruth Mott Foundation.

The grant money continues the foundation's commitment to improving the quality of life for residents in north Flint. The foundation's strategy focuses on four priority areas that residents identified as critical: youth, safety, economic opportunity and neighborhoods.

It's among the latest Flint investments, which are coming from government and other donors.

On Friday, officials announced that Flint will get $20 million from the U.S. Department of Transportation's Transportation Investment Generating Economic Recovery program, called TIGER, to repair roads that are damaged after replacing underground drinking water mains.
