Flint Registry plans summer kick off events

FLINT, Michigan—In a continuing effort to assist members of the community in their enrollment process, the Flint Registry will host a Flint Registry Summer Outreach Week from July 8 through the 13. 

The weeklong event includes family-friendly activities at a number of different locations. The outreach team and Flint Registry staff will be stationed at each to help eligible residents enroll. 

“We are encouraging everyone to use this week to take steps towards recovery,” said Janée Rankin, director of community engagement. “We look forward to answering any questions people may have about the Flint Registry and help them with the process of getting started.” Individuals can also start the enrollment process online at flintregisty.org (click the “Pre-Enroll” button at the top of the page‚ or by calling 833-GO-FLINT.
