Cooperative Agreement Opportunity Announced: Evaluation of Core Violence and Injury Prevention Program (NCIPC CDC-RFA-CE11-1106)
NCIPC has published a new funding opportunity announcement (FOA), CDC-RFA-CE 1106, to support the Evaluation of Core Violence and Injury Prevention Program (VIPP). Program staff will evaluate the Core VIPP program for the states that were awarded as grantees. This program has three overall goals: (1) to assess state injury and violence prevention plans for completeness, measurability, and effectiveness, (2) to develop a tool to support state health department planning and evaluation efforts, and (3) to evaluate the effectiveness of the Core VIPP cooperative agreement. CDC staff plan to improve state health department program and policy initiatives through this evaluation.
The ultimate goal of the Core VIPP is to assist state health departments (SHDs) in building and maintaining effective delivery systems for disseminating, implementing, and evaluating best practice injury and violence programs and policies. CORE VIPP supports general capacity building for SHDs and their respective local partners, and strategic capacity building for the direct implementation of best practice interventions in areas such as older adult falls and child injury. The application deadline was May 25, 2011.
