Description of original award (Fiscal Year 2003, $198,700)

The Housing Authority of the City of Camden (HACC) proposes to provide comprehensive youth services to economically disadvantaged youth living in public housing. The programs are designed to address the needs affecting public housing youth so as to deflect them from delinquency involvement and to avoid the escalation of delinquency into chronic and more serious patterns of delinquent activity. The Youth Initiatives Program provides at-risk youth with positive healthy alternatives to drugs, alcohol and tobacco use, criminal activity, and other high-risk behaviors during the peak crime hours, after-school and in the summer.
