- HHS Office of Minority Health: Communities Addressing Childhood Trauma (ACT) (MP-CPI-16-002)
The Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Minority Health (OMH) is seeking applications for its Communities Addressing Childhood Trauma (ACT) program (MP-CPI-16-002) for fiscal year 2016. ACT is “intended to test the effectiveness of innovative approaches to promoting healthy behaviors among minority and/or disadvantaged youth at-risk for poor health/life outcomes due to childhood trauma.” Specifically, the program “seeks to address unhealthy behaviors in minority youth and provide them with opportunities to learn coping skills and gain experiences that contribute to more positive lifestyles and enhance their capacity to make healthier life choices.” ACT is designed to promote the goals of the President Obama’s My Brother’s Keeper initiative which is based on the 2014 White House Council of Economic Advisers’ report. That report examined the obstacles that disadvantaged youth face, particularly young men of color. It also calculated the costs to society. OMH will host a technical assistance workshop on March 9; see the website for additional information.
