Anyone who has followed the Flint water crisis for the past few years probably thinks of the post-industrial Michigan city as a place that can’t seem to catch a break. Five years after a state-appointed city manager switched the municipal water source to the notoriously polluted Flint River and poisoned residents, the city’s people are still no closer to justice. Many continue to struggle—but that doesn’t mean that Flint is giving up. Instead, there has been an uptick in state and national groups on the ground partnering with city organizations on everything from nurturing startups and creating  innovation hubs to community organizing and healthcare initiatives. A new accelerator called XLerate Health (XLH) is one of these new programs in Flint.
