The New York State Department of Health Office of Minority Health, Health Disparities Prevention (NYSDOH, OMH-HDP) announces the availability of funds to support the Minority Male Wellness Screening Initiative (MMWSI).

For the purposes of this solicitation, “minority males” are defined as men who are American Indian/Alaska Native, Asian American, Black/African American, Latino/Hispanic, and Native Hawaiian/Other Pacific Islander.
Applicants should discuss their ability to design and implement effective programs that can serve minority males or individuals who identify as males using relevant cultural, linguistics, age, gender, developmentally appropriate interventions, and strategies that demonstrate their ability to maintain linkages with organizations in their catchment area performing similar services.
