About this grant

This renewal grant will provide general support to the Harlem Children’s Zone, whose mission is to end intergenerational poverty in Central Harlem and become the model for how other long-distressed communities nationwide and around the world can do the same. The grantee identified two overarching goals for the renewal grant period: 1) continue providing high-impact, wraparound supports to young people living in Central Harlem; and 2) capitalize on its success to achieve sustainability. Created in 2000, the Harlem Children’s Zone annually provides education, health and employment services to over 20,000 children and families living in a 97-block area in Central Harlem.
