Albany --  State Representative Winfred Dukes proposed a grant initiative today that will benefit non-profit groups in the district that work with children and youth.  

At a press conference Representative Dukes outlined the grant initiative to local entities. It is designed to aid the more than 100 501-C-3 children and youth organizations with donations of up to five hundred dollars.  

"The initial goal is to see if we can provide some funding for organizations that work so tirelessly to address the needs and concerns in our community," Dukes says. "The other goal is to see if we can get a handle on those organizations that are working with kids and try to see if we can act aggressively and see if we can solicit other grant funding's."    

Grant Initiative applications have been prepared, and will be sent out to Non profit groups that qualify.

Dukes says he has already donated five thousand dollars of his own money to the initiative.
