State Essentials for Childhood Initiative

Implementation Strategies and Approaches for Child Abuse and Neglect Prevention: CDC-RFA-CE18-1803

This Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) is expected to fund five state governments to address state-specific needs related to the urgent public health problem of Child Abuse and Neglect (CAN). Recipients will implement statewide comprehensive strategies and approaches designed to reduce Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), morbidity, mortality, and related health disparities associated with CAN. Under this NOFO, states will increase strategic, data-driven planning and sustainable use of primary prevention activities, based on the best available evidence.

Recipients will decrease CAN risk factors and increase CAN protective factors by leveraging cross/multi-sector partnerships and resources. They will focus on the implementation of at least two complementary CAN prevention approaches, and at least two designated strategies derived from CDC’s Division of Violence Prevention’s technical package, Preventing Child Abuse and Neglect: A Technical Package of Policy, Norm, and Programmatic Activities Cdc-pdf[4MB, 52Pages, 508].
