Injury Center Funding Opportunity Announcements (FOAs)

CE09-904: Development of the National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS)

Initial Fiscal Year: 2009
Program: DVP
FOA Number: CE09-904
FOA Title: Development of the National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS)

Purpose

The purpose of the program is the development of the National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS). Initial funding to begin the implementation of NVDRS was mandated in FY 2002 appropriations language. The NVDRS assists state governments to create a comprehensive surveillance system that includes data from multiple agencies. These data are necessary to monitor the incidence of specific types of violent deaths in the state. This program addresses the “Healthy People 2010” focus area(s) of Injury and Violence Prevention.

Program Description

NVDRS is a system for collecting data on all violent deaths (homicides, suicides, accidental firearms deaths, deaths of undetermined intent, and deaths from legal intervention, excluding legal executions) in participating states. The NVDRS centralizes data from many diverse sources, providing a more comprehensive picture of violent deaths that would otherwise be available. The NVDRS collects data on victims, suspects, and circumstances related to the violent deaths.
