About this grant

This grant will provide general purpose support to the Harlem Children’s Zone, a comprehensive community-building initiative focused on improving outcomes for poor children and their families in Harlem. In 2011, the grantee provided social, recreational, health, and community-based services to nearly 16,000 children and families in a 97-block area in central Harlem. Recommended support will enable the grantee to continue to expand its seamless system of supports to reach more children, build a new K-12 Promise Academy Charter School, implement a healthy living initiative, and continue a longitudinal study that documents and tracks the success of participants in its core programs.
