Minority Youth Violence Prevention: Integrating Public Health and Community Policing Approaches (MYVP)

Grant Period: 2014-2017

The Minority Youth Violence Prevention (MYVP) program is a partnership between the Department of Health and Human Services Office of Minority Health and the Department of Justice Office of Community Oriented Policing Services to support an initiative to integrate public health and violence prevention approaches. MYVP intends to demonstrate the effectiveness of integrating public health and community policing approaches to reduce disparities in access to public health services and violent crimes and improve the health and well-being of communities of color. MYVP will support program interventions developed through adaptations, refinements, and modifications of promising violence prevention and crime reduction models that are tailored to at-risk minority male youth (10-18 years-old) and integrate a problem-solving approach.
