Governor Cuomo announces $2M for neighborhood-based violence reduction programs
ALBANY, N.Y. -- Seven programs will share more than $2 million in grants to reduce gun violence in communities across New York State.
The programs promote outreach and intervention to steer young adults from solving problems with guns and violence.
"As we continue efforts to build safer communities across the state, these are critical investments in New York's most vulnerable areas that will teach our youth an important lesson: picking up a gun should never be the answer," said Governor Andrew Cuomo.
Five other programs will be funded for the first time as a result of their response to a request for proposals (RFP) issued by DCJS this fall:
Family Services of Westchester – Mount Vernon (Westchester County): $275,600 Back to Basics – Buffalo (Erie County): $366,400 Model Neighborhood Facility – Syracuse (Onondaga County): $396,400 Jacobi Medical Center Auxiliary – Bronx (Bronx County): $300,000 Action for a Better Community – Rochester (Monroe County): $281,600
