Stimulus Projects in Flint

A recent comment about stimulus projects in Flint got me wondering just how much Federal money flowed into the city in an effort to boost the economy. According to Stimulus Watch, the total is more than $28 million for everything from new carpets in the Job Corps office to Head Start funding. Go here to see the list of projects.

Thanks for commenting. You might enjoy my book about Flint called "Teardown: Memoir of a Vanishing City," a Michigan Notable Book for 2014 and a finalist for the 33rd Annual Northern California Book Award for Creative NonFiction. Filmmaker Michael Moore described Teardown as "a brilliant chronicle of the Mad Maxization of a once-great American city." More information about Teardown is available at www.teardownbook.com.
