CDC – Preventing Violence Affecting Young Lives (PREVAYL) (2021)

Applications due: by May 1, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. ET

This program will address multiple forms of violence impacting adolescents and young adults in communities with high rates of violence. This includes youth violence, teen dating violence, and other adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), as well as conditions that put communities at greater risk for violence. Recipients of this NOFO should address risk factors such as social determinants of health (e.g., concentrated poverty, limited educational/employment opportunities) and racial inequity. This is accomplished by implementing complementary prevention strategies at outer levels of the social-ecological model to prevent and decrease the rates of violence in high burden communities.
