Massachusetts Department of Public Health-funded Gun Violence Prevention Initiative Project at MPDC
In June 2019, MPDC was selected as one of 10 partners in the Commonwealth for the new Massachusetts Department of Public Health-funded Gun Violence Prevention (GVP) initiative, which will work to promote and
identify effective services to reduce gun violence and other forms of violence and incorporate support from behavioral health programs with protocols designed to reduce gun violence. Each partner agency will work with
individuals at the highest risk for experiencing violence including youth of color, court-involved youth, individuals who have a substance use disorder and those who have been witness to or victims of violence.
The grants complement efforts of the Shannon Community Safety Initiative and the Safe and Successful Youth Initiative, the state’s multi-faceted strategy for reducing youth violence.
