FLINT –  The federal government has launched the Strong Cities, Strong Communities initiative in Flint to improve the city.

In January, Flint was chosen to be a part of the program, also called SC2. The program uses experts to work alongside city leadership, community organizations, local business and philanthropic foundations to support the cities' visions for economic growth and development.

The secretary of the Department of Housing and Urban Development said an important factor in Flint's selection was the new Imagine Flint Master Plan. The Flint SC2 team will support the plan's implementation, focusing its efforts in helping neighborhoods, public safety and economic development.
