The Sisters of Saint Joseph Neighborhood Network along with the City of Erie are excited to announce the implementation phase of the Byrne Grant. The total amount of the grant award is $598,447.
The goal of the Byrne Program is to improve community safety by designing and implementing effective, comprehensive approaches to addressing crime within a targeted neighborhood as part of a broader strategy to advance neighborhood revitalization through cross-sector community-based partnerships.
The Historic Little Italy neighborhood was selected for the grant because they have created an environment for ongoing, positive change. They are a state designated Elm Street, have created the Historic Little Italy Revitalization plan, and look to outside sources and opportunities for funding.
