Research Funding Opportunity Announcement
Research Grants for Preventing Violence and Violence-related Injury (R01)
On December 9, 2016, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released RFA-CE-17-003, Research Grants for Preventing Violence and Violence Related Injury (R01). CDC intends to commit up to $1,050,000 in Fiscal Year 2017 to support up to three awards. The agency is soliciting investigator-initiated research that will help expand and advance knowledge about what works to prevent violence by rigorously evaluating primary prevention strategies in any of four areas. The funding opportunity announcement can be found at www.grants.gov.
Two research areas focus on the prevention of sexual violence, teen dating violence, and adult intimate partner violence and include evaluation of: a) innovative or promising practice-based prevention strategies that are being implemented but have not been tested for impacts on violence; and b) community- and societal-level strategies, programs, or policies.
Two research areas focus on the prevention of youth violence and include evaluation of: a) community- and societal-level strategies, programs, or policies; and b) strategies to effectively prevent serious and lethal violence among youth.
Violence is a significant public health problem in the United States. Each year, more than 57,000 people in the United States die as a result of violence, and more than 2,100,000 are treated in emergency departments for a violence-related injury. The CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control Division of Violence Prevention is committed to stopping violence before it begins (i.e., primary prevention).
