About the Core SVIPP Program

Empowering States to Save Lives

Collaboration Outcome Readiness Evaluation


The Injury Center provides funding and technical assistance to 23 states through its Core State Violence and Injury Prevention Program (Core SVIPP). This program helps states implement, evaluate and disseminate strategies that address the most pressing injury and violence issues including: child abuse and neglect, traumatic brain injury, motor vehicle crash injury and death, and intimate partner/sexual violence. The program builds on the infrastructure that was established through previous iterations of the Core VIPP CE11-1101. The overall purpose of the Core SVIPP is to: 1) decrease injury and violence related morbidity and mortality and 2) increase sustainability of injury prevention programs and practices.
