The purpose of Re-Entry Community Linkages (RE-LINK) program is to improve health outcomes for minority and/or disadvantaged re-entrants, ages 18-26, in
transition from jail to their communities.
The RE-LINK program aims to demonstrate the effectiveness of multiple stakeholders within the public health system and other community support systems
working together to implement a model transition process.
RE-LINK will establish connections—in a culturally and linguistically appropriate manner for the populations being served—between the re-entry population
and community-based organizations that provide linkages to health care including behavioral health care services, health care coverage (including through
the Health Insurance Marketplace and Medicaid), and other social services such as housing, adult education, and employment assistance programs.
This program begins August 1, 2016 and ends June 30, 2021.
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.
