The Healthy Flint Research Coordinating Center (HFRCC) is a collaboration between U-M Flint, U-M Ann Arbor, MSU and Community Partners. The goals of the HFRCC are to lessen burden on residents and facilitate community-academic collaboration by coordinating research related inquiries. As part of these efforts, the HFRCC has created an open data repository called Open Data Flint. Open Data Flint will serve as a central location for housing Flint-based data gathered from academic institutions, local organizations, and federal agencies. The data are made available to researchers, policy makers, general public, and others interested in Flint.
