2023 Youth Activities & Mental Health Program

Mayor James J. Fiorentini has established the 2023 Youth Activities & Mental Health Grant Program with a budget of $750,000.

The city is now accepting grant applications from individuals, families, businesses and nonprofits to fund qualifying educational, socialization, enrichment/recreation activities, employment skills training, and other youth development opportunities.  It is the mayor’s intention to spend a minimum of $250,000  for direct mental health and substance abuse counseling for Haverhill youth. The mayor has also formed a committee to review and evaluate applications and make recommendations to him for funding. Last year, the city received 60 applications and funded 36 proposals.
