YOUNGSTOWN METRO HOUSING AUTHORITY SECURES
$499,980 FEDERAL GRANT TO REDUCE CRIME

Washington, D.C. -- U.S. Rep. James A. Traficant, Jr. (D--OH) announced today that the Youngstown Metropolitan Housing Authority (YMHA) has been awarded a federal grant of $499,980 to help reduce violent crime and drug trafficking. The grant was awarded by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). Traficant wrote to HUD in August to urge approval of the grant. "I am pleased and gratified that HUD finally agreed to grant these much needed funds," said Traficant. "I know that they will be put to good use."

The grant will be used by YMHA to help finance their drug elimination program which is designed to reduce and/or eliminate violent crime, drug trafficking, and drug-related crime at five family developments and one high rise building. The funds will be used on initiatives such as enhanced protective services, additional security guards, increased resident patrols, drug prevention and treatment, and youth activities.
