Hi Erin! Yes, this grant is for eligible counties where GM has a facility. We will look at the metro areas later on in the webinar, but you can also check out all eligible counties on page 9 of the Application Instructions pdf on our site
Molly LaLone

There is a GM facility in Orion Twp MI but I didn't see that on your list, does that mean the area is not eligible?
Emily (She/Her) Putnam, PPS
34:28
Hi Molly, Oakland County is eligible
Cynthia Cukiernik
36:50
If we have other projects that are not eligible for this grant (because of location or other specifications), are there other opportunities through PPS that we can be looking into?

Rochelle Landy
58:10
So my takeaway is that for this specific grant, it's better to have just a "place" that can be made better for an underserved community, than it is to have the actual plan for the "place"
Lauren Welsh

What kind of organizational capacity are you looking for when it comes to staff?
Brendan Coyne

CentroVilla25 is an example of a project GM is supporting near the GM Parma Metal Centerhttps://www.lavillahispana.org/centrovilla25
Cynthia Cukiernik

It sounds like having an initiative, a community, and a place are what you would start with?
Jennifer Fields
59:33
thank you.
Emily (She/Her) Putnam, PPS
59:44
Hi Rochelle, We want to be sure to leave room to let takeaways from the community engagement process lead the way. While you can have a clear site, community, and goals in mind - this grant is not intended to solely fund the implementation of a fully-baked project.
