67.5  Million for Demolition in Flint and Genesee County


Since 2014, the Genesee County Land Bank Authority (GCLBA) has received a total of $67.5 million in Hardest Hit Fund (HHF) dollars for demolition in Flint and Genesee County. The funding enables the GCLBA to work with its partners, including the City of Flint, the Genesee County Metropolitan Planning Commission, and local units of government throughout Genesee County, to demolish nearly 4,700 blighted and abandoned houses by the Fall of 2019. 

The HHF was established in 2010 with $7.6 billion awarded to 18 states and Washington, D.C. to fund foreclosure relief programs after the housing crisis. The U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Hardest Hit Fund, part of the federal Troubled Asset Relief Program (TARP), is designed to help homeowners in states hit hardest by the housing crisis.
