CE13-1305: Youth Violence Training and Technical Assistance

Initial Fiscal Year: 2013
Program: DVP
FOA Number: CE13-1305 FOA Title: Youth Violence Training and Technical Assistance
 

Purpose and Description  

The primary purpose of this FOA is to provide training and technical assistance to city health departments to create and sustain the conditions needed to prevent youth violence by: mobilizing or enhancing a multi-sector coalition focusing on preventing youth violence and by leveraging existing or new resources to implement and scale-up strategies to prevent youth violence based upon the best available evidence to make a population level impact on youth violence in participating cities.

This FOA builds upon prior CDC youth violence prevention investments made in four local health departments implementing strategies based upon the best available evidence (Striving to Reduce Youth Violence Everywhere-STRYVE), upon the work of Urban Networks to Increase Thriving Youth (UNITY), focused on creating the conditions in cities to prevent violence, and upon the work of the Academic Centers of Excellence on Youth Violence Prevention, focused on community and academic partnerships to implement and evaluate youth violence prevention strategies.

The primary purpose of this FOA is to provide training and technical assistance to city health departments to create and sustain the conditions needed to prevent youth violence by: mobilizing or enhancing a multi-sector coalition focusing on preventing youth violence and by leveraging existing or new resources to implement and scale-up strategies to prevent youth violence based upon the best available evidence to make a population level impact on youth violence in participating cities.

The recipient will provide training and technical assistance to a range of cities: those with existing multi-sector coalitions and comprehensive plans to prevent violence against youth reflecting the public health approach; those with existing comprehensive plans or multi-sector coalitions but not both; and those without a comprehensive plan that includes prevention or an existing multi-sector coalition to prevent youth violence. To meet the needs across these types of cities, training and technical assistance will be delivered through a three-tiered approach:

Tier 1: Basic training and technical assistance to 8-10 cities without a comprehensive plan or a multi-sector coalition.

Tier 2: Advanced training and technical assistance to 8-10 cities with a comprehensive plan to prevent youth violence or a multi-sector coalition, but not both.

Tier 3: Intensive training and technical assistance to 3-4 cities with both an existing comprehensive plan and a multi-sector coalition. These cities must sign a memorandum of understanding agreeing to re-allocate or identify new funds between $2-$10 million to implement the plan.

Anticipated outcomes of the training and technical assistance vary across tiers, commensurate with type of training and technical assistance received. Cities will apply to the recipient as either intensive, advanced, or basic cities.
