Illinois Funded Programs and Activities
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.
