The "Flint Sprint" will tackle 20 different projects in the city over the next 60 days.

The Detroit bankruptcy brought government, foundations and business together, working to get through that historic crisis. Today marks the public launch of an effort to do the same for Flint.

Listen to the full interview above to hear more about the different projects that are in the works and how this was modeled after the Detroit bankruptcy.
