Pennsylvania 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.

Academic Centers for Excellence on Youth Violence Prevention
The National Academic Centers for Excellence (ACEs) on Youth Violence Prevention connect academic and community resources to study and create lasting ways to prevent youth violence.

Older Adult Fall Prevention
CDC and the Administration on Aging (AoA) have developed an interagency agreement. AoA currently provides 24 states with three-year grants that are designed to mobilize the aging, public health, and non-profit networks at the state and local level. The purpose of these grants is to accelerate translation of research into practice by introducing evidence-based disease and disability prevention programs at the community level. Of the 24 AoA grants, four evidence-based fall prevention models are being implemented: Matter of Balance (10 states and increasing); Stepping On (one state); Tai Chi (one state); and Step by Step (one state).
