HFRCC was formed in June 2016 in an effort to coordinate ongoing and new research efforts in Flint. HFRCC seeks to lessen the burden of Flint residents by:

  • Reducing redundant research by connecting academic partners working on similar projects
  • Providing training and resources for those working with the Flint community
  • Being a service-oriented Center with voluntary participation by community and researchers
  • Increasing academic engagement in the community in a positive way
