Purpose

Minority Youth Violence Prevention II (MYVP II) provides grants to identify innovative approaches to significantly reduce the prevalence and impact of youth violence among racial and ethnic minority and/or disadvantaged at-risk youth. MYVP II will support interventions tailored to at-risk racial and ethnic minority and/or disadvantaged youth (ages 12-18 years) and requires coordinated, multi-discipline approaches that should address:

  1. Public health, education, and public safety concerns
  2. Disparities in access to public health services
  3. Social determinants of health
  4. Risk and protective factors

Minority youth to be served include:

  • American Indians and Alaska Natives
  • Native Hawaiians and other Pacific Islanders
  • African Americans

In addition to review criteria, consideration of awards will include geographic distribution.
