Government Funding Helps Black Youth Find Alternatives to Violence

June 18th 2008

The African-Canadian Christian Network (ACCN) today announced that 18 churches partnering with community organizations will receive $623,000 in grants in the organization’s latest round of funding.

In April 2006, the McGuinty government awarded the ACCN $3 million over two years to assist Black Christian leaders
foster and enhance programs that enrich the lives or young people and their families. Applicants for funding were required
to submit proposals for projects that focused on ACCN’s four areas of focus – Family, Education, Employment and Crime
Prevention.

QUOTES
“Thanks to the Ontario government and the Toronto Community Foundation, we have funded more than 60 exciting
community projects for GTA youth from Jamestown in the west to Malvern in the east,” said ACCN Chair Rev. Alvin
Nicholson. “The grants we are awarding today will go to six new projects and to 12 we have previously funded. We are so
very proud of the outstanding work of churches and community organizations that, with our help, have touched the lives of
thousands of young people inspiring them to make positive choices.”
