42 Youth Programs Receive Funding from MOHS
Monday Jun 4th, 2018
The Mayor’s Office of Human Services (MOHS) recently awarded $1.79 million in funding for 41 Out-of-School Time programs. Programs will offer more than 1,100 youth the opportunity to learn a musical instrument, develop job skills, intern with local organizations, conduct medical research, develop and strengthen arts and entrepreneurship skills, and more. Importantly, this work is aligned with the Mayor’s violence reduction goal to engage youth and invest in programs that provide safe spaces where youth can explore, discover, and thrive.
Funding was made available through an RFP process coordinated by MOHS. In total, 184 applications were received from programs requesting more than $11 million. All applications were reviewed and scored by community reviewers. $250,000 was provided to six programs in Park Heights from Video Lottery Terminal Funds.
