"The Communities Addressing Childhood Trauma Program (ACT) seeks to address unhealthy behaviors in minority and/or disadvantaged youth, ages 5-15 years when they enter the program, who have been exposed to childhood trauma. ACT is intended to test the effectiveness of innovative approaches in promoting healthy behaviors among minority and/or disadvantaged youth at-risk for poor health/life outcomes due to childhood trauma. These innovative approaches (including curricula) should be designed for minority and/or disadvantaged youth ages 5 to 15 years who have been exposed to childhood trauma, as well as support services to their families. These demonstration grants should take a multi-partner approach."
