Flint Water Infrastructure Improvement Funds Lie Unclaimed


More than $87 million in federal funds appropriated for fixing Flint’s infrastructure after the city’s lead in water crisis has not been collected. A top EPA official advised Mayor Sheldon Neeley and Liesl Eichler Clark, director of the Michigan Department of Environment, Great Lakes and Energy, of the untouched funds in a Feb. 27 letter. The city has been urged to “advance the schedule of remaining projects in order to complete work during the project period of the grant which ends Dec. 31, 2021.”
