Seeking Resident Volunteers to Develop a Plan for Neighborhood Revitalization

Posted by on March 19, 2015 in News

Metro Community Development is the lead agency for the Building Neighborhood Capacity Program (BNCP), a neighborhood revitalization initiative under President Obama’s Administration. In 2012, Flint was chosen with three (3) other communities — Fresno CA, Memphis TN, and Milwaukee WI to take part in the federal funded Neighborhood Revitalization Initiative (NRI).

The role of BNCP is to develop the capacity of residents as leaders to drive community change and remove barriers to revitalization efforts. The capacity building process develops relationships, increases knowledge and skills for residents, community partners and businesses to access resources that will convert their neighborhoods into places of opportunity.

BNCP is currently working in parts of Ward 1 and Ward 3. We are looking for resident volunteers to develop a neighborhood plan that will spark neighborhood revitalization. Could that person be you? If so, contact the BNCP office located in Holmes STEM Academy at (810) 767-8054.
