Texas Department of Family and Protective Services: Prevention and Early Intervention

Congratulations to the CYD Grant Awardees

PEI is pleased to announce the award of our Community Youth Development grants. Through the CYD program, grantees will serve their communities by fostering positive youth development and supporting healthy families, with the ultimate goal of creating resilient, thriving communities. 

CYD provides services in ZIP codes with high incidences of juvenile crime. Communities prioritize and fund specific prevention services to address their community level needs.

Grants begin September 1, 2021, for a five year period.
