FLINT, Mich. (AP) - The Genesee County Habitat for Humanity is using a $50,000 grant to fund a neighborhood revitalization effort and new marketing strategy in Flint.

The Flint Journal reports (https://bit.ly/1BrvAuL ) Habitat neighborhood outreach coordinator Tom Wyatt says $40,000 will be used to hire a graphic designer to help with the Grand Traverse neighborhood’s image and a community development and marketing manager.

The remaining $10,000 will go toward implementing the revitalization imitative.

The area Habitat was selected for the NeighborWorks America grant from among 17 other cities around the country earlier this year. A NeighborWorks consultant has since made recommendations for marketing Grand Traverse as an outdoorsy place where residents can live a green lifestyle.

Wyatt says University of Michigan-Flint marketing students will work with the group as part of the marketing team.
