OWENS AWARDS $30,000 YOUTH CRIME PREVENTION AND INTERVENTION GRANT TO LOGAN COUNTY PROGRAM
Governor awards close to $8 million statewide in YCPI grants
DENVER – Governor Bill Owens has awarded $7.9 million statewide in Youth Crime Prevention and Intervention (YCPI) grants to reduce incidents of youth crime and violence. Logan County received $30,000.
"These monies will go toward helping to address violence and criminal activity among youth in Colorado," said Gov. Owens. "The organizations that are receiving funding will serve thousands of young people and their families through prevention and intervention programs."
The following Logan County program is a YCPI recipient for fiscal year 2000-2001:
Re 1 Valley School District: Family Connections Logan County. Program provides home visits, developmental screenings, parent support groups, parenting classes, monthly newsletters and a lending library. All this is to enhance positive parenting skills to expectant parents and parents of young children.
The Youth Crime Prevention and Intervention Grant program provides funding for community-based programs that target youth and their families for prevention and intervention services in an effort to reduce incidents of youth crime and violence.
In 1994, the Colorado General Assembly passed legislation that created the YCPI program. The grants will be distributed on August 1.
