Flint + Mid Michigan Getting Millions Of Dollars To Fight Blight [Video]
Drive down any neighborhood street in Flint and you will see more than a few boarded up houses. The abandoned homes are eye sores, and can invite a ton of criminal activity, but thanks to 20 million dollars of federal money, Flint will be able to do something about it.
The U.S. Treasury Department is pumping 100 million dollars in federal funding into five Michigan cities, dealing with an overflow of abandoned sites. Flint and Saginaw are two of the bigger recipients. Fli-City will get about 20-million and Saginaw will get over 11-million.
Where do you think the wrecking ball should land first?
