Urban Recreation and At-Risk Youth Act of 1994. Report to Accompany H.R. 4034. 103D Congress, 2d Session.
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House Committee on Natural Resources.
The Committee on Natural Resources reports on Bill H.R. 4034 to amend the Urban Park and Recreation Recovery Act of 1978 to authorize grants for the expansion of recreation opportunities for at-risk youth in urban areas with a high prevalence of crime and for other purposes. The Committee reports favorably on the Bill, with an amendment, and recommends its passage. The amendment stresses that well-maintained recreational facilities and services have been shown to decrease the incidence of violent crime among youth and to improve the quality of life for urban residents. Selection criteria for grants are defined, and how Park and Recreation Action Recovery Programs must coordinate recreation and crime-prevention efforts is reviewed. The historical background of the Bill is summarized. (SLD)
