Federal Grant to Help Troubled Youth
The Orange County Probation Department has won a state grant of just over $1 million for two programs to steer at-risk youth away from crime.
The county will get $200,000 for each of the next five years, most of which will be used to pay facilitators hired by the Orange County Dispute Resolution Center. Part of the funding will be reserved for academic tutoring for the participants.
As part of the grant, the county will get an additional $50,000 the first year to train its probation officers to participate in the programs.
How far will the Grant Go?
The department expects to serve at least 26 teens the first year and at least 39 each of the following years. Both programs – known as “Strengthening Families” and “Aggression Replacement Training” – consist of group counseling sessions.
County officials say Orange was one of seven counties in New York to win the competitive grant. Related Articles:
