Grants to Youth in Distress

The American Red Cross September 11 Recovery Program (SRP) has announced thirty-nine grants totaling $8.72 million to nonprofit organizations in New York, New Jersey, and Massachusetts to assist children and youth whose experiences following the 9/11 terrorist attacks may be causing continuing psychological distress.

The September 11 Recovery Program, is made possible by the Liberty Disaster Relief Fund of American Red Cross. The fund was established in the days immediately following the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. The Liberty Fund, which has seen its share of controversy, was originally funded with the donations that poured into the American as well as International Red Cross in the days, weeks and months following the September 11 attacks.
