The Tulare County Board of Supervisors today awarded $70,000 in grant funding to non-profit organizations throughout Tulare County through the Step Up Youth Activities Grant Program. The organizations will use the funds to work with gang affiliated or gang exposed youth in Tulare County.

"The focus on anti-gang programs is extremely important for our communities," said Board Chairman Phil Cox. "We need to invest in providing positive leadership activities for our youth if they are to be successful in the future."

The Tulare County Youth Commission presented its funding recommendations to the Board at its regular meeting, held Dec. 9. Commissioners reviewed the submitted grant applications and made funding recommendations to the Board of Supervisors. Grant proposals were evaluated based on the ability of the proposed programs to successfully impact at-risk youth and to have measurable outcomes.

The programs funded on Tuesday, Dec. 9 range from mentorships and etiquette training to after school tutoring and computer training. The organizations that received funding are:

1.) Boys and Girls Club of the Sequoias: $10,000;
2.) Tulare Athletic Boxing Club: $10,000;
3.) CSET Pixley: $5,550; Tulare County Sheriffs PAL: $4,450;
4.) Pro-Youth/HEART: $6,500; Young Life: $5,000;
