The American Rescue Plan Act is providing $94 million in funds to Flint to improve the city, and Mayor Sheldon Neeley’s administration is seeking input from residents on how to spend it. There are four sessions planned to gather public input and decide the best areas for funding and provide transparency of where the funds are spent.
Each of the four sessions is scheduled from 6 to 7:30 p.m.
- 17 — Mott Community College Event Center.
- 22 — Sylvester Broome Empowerment Village.
- March 3 — Accelerated Learning Academy (old Scott School).
- March 8 — Insight Institute of Neurosurgery & Neuroscience.
There are federal rules and a process regarding compliance with how the money can be spent, and these will be discussed by representatives from Ernst & Young at the sessions. ABC12 News anchor Dawn Jones will be moderating the sessions.
