CHOICE GRANTS
In 2004, voters in Santa Rosa passed Measure O, a quarter-cent Transaction and Use Tax to provide critical funding for gang prevention programming.  Beginning in 2006, the Measure O CHOICE Grant Program has provided a variety of youth and parenting programs which focus on gang and anti-violence education, prevention and intervention, community safety, and a comprehensive array of social services in high need neighborhoods.
