About this grant

This renewal grant will continue general purposes support to the Harlem Children’s Zone, whose mission is to end intergenerational poverty in Central Harlem and become a model for other communities engaged in similar efforts. 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. Based on its successes, Harlem Children’s Zone has been the model for three federal initiatives and has leveraged $500 million in federal funding for over 60 communities around the country.
