CDC intends to commit up to $1,050,000 in Fiscal Year 2018 to support up to three awards.

CDC is seeking to support research that rigorously evaluates primary prevention strategies, programs, and policies to address specific gaps in the prevention of youth violence and/or teen dating/intimate partner/sexual violence. The specific research objectives focus on evaluating the effectiveness of:
- Community-level or societal-level strategies, programs, and policies
- Strategies to prevent serious and lethal violence involving youth
- Hospital-based strategies to prevent violence involving youth
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. The CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control Division of Violence Prevention works to stop violence before it begins.
