Childhood Trauma Grants

Communities Addressing Childhood Trauma (ACT) Program

Grant Period: 2016-2021

The purpose of the Communities Addressing Childhood Trauma (ACT) program is to test the effectiveness of innovative approaches in promoting healthy behaviors among minority and/or disadvantaged youth at-risk for poor health and life outcomes due to childhood trauma.

The innovative approaches under the ACT Program will be designed to help minority and/or disadvantaged youth, ages 5 to 15 years old at the start of the five year program, who have been exposed to childhood trauma, as well as to provide support services to their families. ACT 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.

Community and partnering organizations will reflect a wide range of partners, including university or research institutions, community/faith based organizations, public health or health care organizations, and organizations that provide mental health services. ACT projects will begin July 2016 and end June 2020.
