Requirements

The Minority Youth Violence Prevention II (MYVP II) program will seek to determine the most effective models that integrate public health and law enforcement, along with evidence-based violence prevention strategies and interventions, and culturally and linguistically appropriate approaches to reduce disparities in access to public health services, reduce violent crimes, and improve the health and wellbeing of communities of color in communities with greater prevalence of youth violence. MYVP II projects will serve as demonstration sites for addressing disparities in access to public health, and for addressing the elevated risk of violence and crime that exists in many of our nation's most distressed neighborhoods.
