BALTIMORE (AP) — Maryland lawmakers say a Johns Hopkins youth violence prevention center has received a $1.3 million grant from the federal Centers for Disease Control.

U.S. Sens. Barbara Mikulski and Ben Cardin and Rep. Elijah Cummings announced the grant on Friday. The lawmakers say the Johns Hopkins Center for the Prevention of Youth Violence will work over the next five years with Baltimore and state officials, as well as youth and community groups. The strategy includes helping youths find jobs and working with programs to prevent bullying and promote safe environments.
