QLICI 2020 Mott Community College Culinary Arts Facility - Metro

Mott Community College (MCC) in Flint, Michigan, is dedicated to providing high quality, accessible and affordable educational opportunities and services. As the school’s culinary arts programs grew in popularity, MCC identified the need for an expanded facility.

The new culinary arts institute was supported by NMTC allocations from Cinnaire and Chase New Markets Corporation. The new Culinary Arts Institute allowed MCC to expand their curriculum and to more than double their program capacity to serve approximately 400 students. This brought new students to the area and created secondary economic impact in Flint. Development of the new facility created 65 temporary jobs, 10 new full-time jobs and retained an additional seven permanent jobs.

“Cinnaire is proud to be part of the team that made MCC a reality–renovating an iconic downtown building, while providing culinary arts educational opportunities and creating jobs and economic impact in Flint,” said Mark McDaniel, president and CEO of Cinnaire. “The new markets tax credit incentivizes private investment to spur community revitalization and economic development in distressed communities. MCC is the ideal example of the NMTC tool at work.  We are honored to join our partners from Mott Community College, the C.S Mott Foundation, Chase and Uptown Reinvestment Corporation to strengthen and support downtown Flint as a healthy, vibrant community.”
