Minnesota Funded Programs and Activities

Core Violence and Injury Prevention Program (Core VIPP)
Injury is a leading killer in all 50 states. However, due to variations in geography, weather conditions, and population groups, injury problems often vary between states. Through the Core Violence and Injury Prevention Program (Core VIPP), CDC supports grantee partners to build capacity related to the prevention and control of injuries and to develop or strengthen their injury surveillance programs, particularly those with a focus on traumatic brain injury (TBI).

Rape Prevention and Education (RPE) Program
Sexual violence, including rape, is preventable. Recognizing this, Congress passed the Violence Against Women Act in 1994. This landmark legislation established the Rape Prevention and Education (RPE) program at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The goal of the RPE program is to strengthen sexual violence prevention efforts. It operates in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rico, and six U.S. territories.
