Injury Control Research Centers
The Injury Control Research Center (ICRC) program began in 1987 and has grown considerably since its inception. In 1987, four centers were awarded approximately $500,000 per center each year for five years. By 2019, the program grew to include nine centers who were awarded approximately $833,000 per center each year for five years. Typically, ICRCs are funded for five-year cycles through an externally reviewed, competitive process.
Congress currently appropriates $9 million to CDC’s ICRC program to:
- support core operations,
- conduct the research necessary to fill gaps in the evidence base for developing and evaluating new injury control interventions and improving translation of effective interventions,
- conduct training of injury control professionals, and
- undertake other programmatic activities to reduce the burden of injury.
