FLINT, Mich. (AP) - Efforts to boost economic development and research in Flint are getting support from the U.S. Economic Development Administration.

Officials announced Monday that Kettering University received $1.9 million for completion of phase two of the Kettering University GM Mobility Research Center. Work will begin in the spring and includes a low-speed road course with elevation and surface changes and other features.

The University of Michigan-Flint received $400,000 to establish a University Center for Community and Economic Development. And the Flint & Genesee Chamber of Commerce has received nearly $200,000 to create a brownfield redevelopment accelerator.

In a statement, the EDA’s Assistant Secretary Jay Williams says that the investments “support Flint’s initiatives to grow the local economy and provide employment opportunities for the local workforce which helps strengthen the country’s global competitiveness.”
