Grant Will Support Metro Community Development’s Efforts to Provide Affordable Housing, Revitalize Neighborhoods and Create Good-Paying Jobs

Congressman Dan Kildee, Chief Deputy Whip of the U.S. House Democratic Caucus, announced that Metro Community Development in Flint will receive a $215,000 federal grant to help develop affordable housing, revitalize neighborhoods and promote good-paying jobs in Flint.

This grant, through the NeighborWorks program, is funded through the Consolidated Appropriations Act, which Congressman Kildee voted for, and was signed into law, in December 2020. The Neighborhood Reinvestment Corporation, also known as NeighborWorks, is a federal organization established by Congress in 1978 in part to help communities find local solutions for affordable housing challenges.

“When we invest in our neighborhoods and create good-paying jobs, our community becomes stronger and safer. Every family, regardless of their zip code, should have access to affordable housing,” said Congressman Kildee. “I am proud to announce this federal grant for Metro Community Development to build stronger neighborhoods in Flint, which are the backbone our community and our future.”

Congressman Kildee has worked to strengthen neighborhoods in communities across Michigan’s Fifth Congressional District. In February 2020, Kildee announced another NeighborWorks grant to promote affordable housing in Flint. Congressman Kildee previously announced $1.2 million in federal housing grants to help support and promote affordable, safe housing opportunities for families and seniors impacted by the coronavirus.
