DANY will award $20,000  to up to 10 local organizations who specifically focus on gun violence prevention and who operate in and/or can demonstrate the ability to identify and successfully engage young people at risk of gun violence in one or more of the following focus areas: the 23rd, 25th, 28th and the 32nd precincts in Harlem; the 34th precinct in Washington Heights/ Inwood; PSA 6 in the 24th (Upper West Side) and 26th (West Harlem) precincts; and PSA 4 which includes the 5th, 7th and 9th precincts on the Lower East Side.
