Picente: Youth Bureau Seeks Grant Applications for 2010 To Operate Programs for Oneida County Youth
Oneida County Executive Anthony J. Picente, Jr. today announced that the Oneida County Youth Bureau is accepting proposals from interested non-profit organizations that would like the opportunity to provide youth-oriented programs that offer delinquency prevention or recreation as well as those that target runaway and homeless youth.
- The Special Delinquency Prevention Program (SDPP) is for youth with specific needs to prevent involvement or re-involvement in the juvenile justice system or out of home placement. SDPP funds do not require a match.
- The Youth Development Delinquency Prevention (YDDP) funding is for recreation and other youth service initiatives and applications require a 50% cash match.
- The Runaway and Homeless Youth Act (RHYA) provides crisis and transitional living services. A 40% agency match is required.
The Youth Bureau is located in the Paul Building, 209 Elizabeth Street, Utica.
