Core SIPP Fact Sheet

Core State Injury Prevention Program
Core SIPP supports health departments to identify and respond to existing and emerging injury threats.

Injuries are the leading cause of death for Americans age 1 to 44.

Approximately 27 million people suffer non-fatal injuries requiring emergency department (ED) visits.

More than 240,000 individuals in the United States die each year because of injuries.

Most events that result in injury and/or death could be prevented if evidence-based public health strategies, practices, and policies were used throughout the nation.

What is Core SIPP?

The Core State Injury Prevention Program (Core SIPP) is a cooperative agreement funded by CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control.

  • CDC awarded funding to 23 states for 2021-2025. Each of the 23 states received approximately $250,000 in base funding to support implementation of data-driven public health actions to prevent injury in these states.
  • Six recipients received additional funds to implement and evaluate activities to increase the injury and violence prevention evidence base and demonstrate public health impact. Examples of these activities include policies that strengthen economic resilience, ACEs prevention that focuses on creating change at the structural and community level, virtual checkpoints for transportation safety, and implementation of CDC’s Mild TBI Guidelines.
