Youth Bureau Accepts Grant Applications for Youth Development Projects

OSWEGO - The Oswego City-County Youth Bureau expects to receive limited funding for youth development programs in 2018.

Not-for-profit organizations have until Friday, Oct. 13, to apply for the grant funds, which are allocated through the Oswego City-County Youth Bureau and the New York State Office of Children and Family Services.

"These state grant funds are allocated annually by the Youth Bureau Board of Directors to not-for-profit agencies," said Brian Chetney, director of the Oswego City-County Youth Bureau. "The Youth Bureau board will carefully consider each proposal to ensure a large cross-section of youth are served from different age groups and geographic areas in Oswego County."

"The Youth Bureau supports youth development and prevention as an ongoing process in which children and adolescents seek ways to build life skills and competencies that allow them to be successful," said Chetney. "The end product of a strong youth development system is timely high school graduation, career and job readiness, strong civic-minded young people and the ability to overcome involvement with the juvenile delinquency system."

Applicants should call the Youth Bureau at 315-349-3451 and request an application package.

New applicants are also encouraged to schedule an appointment with Youth Bureau staff prior to completing an application, in order to review the application requirements.

For further information, those interested may contact Chetney at brian.chetney@oswegocounty.com or call the Youth Bureau at 315-349-3451.
