"Crime is not prevented and children are not nurtured at the state or city level. The government's role is to support community-based efforts helping children and families who are at risk of inflicting harm or being harmed."

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).

National Violent Death Reporting System (NVDRS)

NVDRS is a state-based surveillance system that links data from law enforcement, coroners and medical examiners, vital statistics, and crime laboratories to assist each participating state in designing and implementing tailored prevention and intervention efforts. NVDRS provides data on violence trends at national and regional levels; each state can access all of these important data elements from one central database.

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.

Domestic Violence Prevention Enhancement and Leadership Through Alliances (DELTA)

The Domestic Violence Prevention Enhancement and Leadership Through Alliances (DELTA) program seeks to reduce the incidence (i.e., number of new cases) of IPV in funded communities. The program addresses the entire continuum of IPV from episodic violence to battering through a variety of activities.

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.
