About City of Flint’s Community and Economic Development Department

The mission of the Community and Economic Development Department is to improve the quality of life for all residents of the City of Flint by encouraging neighborhood stabilization through the creation of safe, healthy, and desirable neighborhoods supported by quality community services, promotion of a growing and diverse economy, one that spurs innovation and small business development, and preparation of the workforce, both for today’s jobs and those of the future.

The Department utilizes a number of federal, state and local grant and loan packages to aid in the community and economic development of the City, the primary source of of which is our annual entitlement allocation from the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD).  The Department receives approximately $4.5 million a year, the majority of which is sub-granted to organizations and city departments to implement programs benefiting the low- and moderate- income population of the City of Flint.
