Madden: Over $450K awarded to Monroe County in crime and delinquency grants


STROUDSBURG, Dec. 9 – State Rep. Maureen Madden, D-Monroe, has been instrumental in securing over $450K in grants from the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency.

“I’m thrilled these programs have received grants because they serve some of the most vulnerable populations in our community,” Madden said.

The grants are as follows:

  • $331,617 to the Monroe County Commissioners to support the responsibilities assigned to the Prosecution and Juvenile Probation. The funding is provided through the Rights and Services Act and Victims of Juvenile Offenders grant programs.

  • $78,258 for adult probation services.

  • $46,996 for the Monroe Women's Resources Center. The Children’s Advocacy Center of Monroe County had requested the funding to provide services to the child victims and their non-offending caregivers in their community, promote community awareness on issues related to child abuse, assist multidisciplinary investigative team members with training on issues in the field, and facilitate efficient and meaningful case review while continuing to move towards National Children’s Alliance accreditation. Funds will be used to partially support the salaries of the executive director and intake specialist/administrative support position.
