Grandparent Resource Center Sites

The Mayor’s Action Plan for Neighborhood Safety (MAP)

The NYC Department for the Aging’s Grandparent Resource Center (GRC) is a partner under the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice Mayor’s Action Plan for Neighborhood Safety or MAP. MAP launched in 2014 as a targeted, comprehensive approach to reduce violent crime in and around the 15 public housing developments that comprise almost 20 percent of violent crime in the City’s public housing. In July 2022 and January 2023, the MAP initiative is expected to expand to additional public housing developments (site list below).

As a MAP partner, the Grandparent Resource Center provides hybrid kinship care supportive services, including the following:

  • One-on-one case assistance;
  • On-site and virtual support groups, workshops and trainings;
  • Resources and referrals for benefits and entitlements;
  • Intergenerational programs engaging older adults, youth and families; and
  • Educational and recreational activities.
