Notice of Funding Opportunity
Evaluation of Policies for the Primary Prevention of Multiple Forms of Violence
On December 21, 2017, CDC released RFA-CE-18-002, Evaluation of Policies for the Primary Prevention of Multiple Forms of Violence. NCIPC intends to commit up to $700,000 in Fiscal Year 2018 to fund up to two cooperative agreements to rigorously evaluate previously or currently implemented federal, state, local, tribal, or organizational policies for impacts on multiple forms of violence. The proposed research should evaluate the impact of a selected policy on reducing rates of at least two violence outcomes, including child abuse and neglect, youth violence, intimate partner violence, sexual violence and/or suicide. This research will expand the evidence about policies that prevent violence.
Violence is a significant public health problem in the United States, resulting in more than 62,000 deaths and more than 2 million nonfatal injuries treated in emergency departments in 2015. Experiencing violence can lead to other significant mental and physical health consequences, such as depression, anxiety, pregnancy complications, heart disease and diabetes, and even reductions in life opportunities, including educational attainment and employment. The economic burden of exposure to violence is substantial costing the United States billions each year in medical, criminal justice, and other costs. Violence is preventable when evidence-based strategies are used.
