Between August 2014 and August 2015 the Implementation Task Groups successfully completed work throughout the city related to their objectives. 

The work summary can be seen here: Task Group Work Summary.

Project Summary: The City of Flint and the Flint Housing Commission (FHC) have partnered to address the historic challenges facing the Atherton East public housing development and the surrounding community. The Choice Neighborhoods Planning Grant helped the City and FHC develop the South Flint Community Plan (SFCP). SFCP is a detailed document outlining projects to implement the Master Plan in a targeted area. The SFCP planning process was community-driven and the final plan details strategies for Housing, Neighborhood and People. The Flint Housing Commission selected Norstar Development to complete the relocation of Atherton East. Funding for this will come from numerous sources. An application was submitted to HUD on November 20, 2017 and awarded to the City and FHC on July 6, 2018 for a $30 Million Implementation Grant to relocate Atherton East and improve education, safety, and economic outcomes for South Flint residents. Phase I development of the new Atherton East, Clark Commons  was awarded Low Income Housing Tax Credits by the Michigan State Housing Development Authority and development will begin in early spring 2019.
