California 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).
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.

Injury Control Research Centers (ICRCs)
Injury Control Research Centers conduct research in all three core phases of injury control (prevention, acute care, and rehabilitation) and serve as training centers as well as information centers for the public. Research design in these centers is interdisciplinary and incorporates the fields of medicine, engineering, epidemiology, law, and criminal justice, behavioral and social sciences, biostatistics, public health, and biomechanics.

Injury Center Success Stories
New Community Center to Prevent Youth Violence
Southern California Academic Center of Excellence on Youth Violence Prevention
"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."
- Riverside City Council Member
Updated Steps for Californians During Earthquakes
"New research by SCIPRC shows that people still have misperceptions about how to stay safe during an earthquake. We are working to ensure that, if an earthquake occurs, California residents know that they should NOT move toward a doorway but that they should drop, cover, and hold on."
- Billie P. Weiss, Associate Director, SCIPRC UCLA SPH
