Grants to Support New Investigators in Conducting Research Related to Preventing Interpersonal Violence Impacting Children and Youth
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - ERA
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - ERA is offering grants to support new investigators in conducting research related to preventing interpersonal violence impacting children and youth. This grant opportunity falls under the category of Health and is a discretionary grant. The grant does not require cost sharing or matching. The estimated total program funding is $1,200,000, with an award ceiling of $150,000 and no award floor specified. It is expected that there will be 4 awards given. The purpose of this grant is to provide support for an intensive, supervised career development experience in violence prevention research leading to research independence. The grant aims to ensure the availability of trained scientists to address critical public health research questions and prevent violence and injury. Applicants must propose a research project that addresses at least one of the research priorities in the interpersonal violence prevention section of the NCIPC Research Priorities. These research priorities include adverse childhood experiences, child abuse and neglect, youth violence, intimate partner violence (including teen dating violence), sexual violence, and cross-cutting violence prevention. Applicants are also encouraged to address multiple forms of violence impacting children or youth, firearm-related behavior, crime, injuries, and deaths among children and youth, and the social or structural conditions that contribute to a greater risk for violence and health inequities across population groups. The grant application must be submitted electronically and the deadline for submission is 11:59 pm ET on the listed application due date. The estimated award date and project start date are both September 30, 2025.

Rigorously Evaluating Primary Prevention Strategies for Intimate Partner Violence and Sexual Violence
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - ERA
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - ERA is forecasting a federal grant opportunity titled "Rigorously Evaluating Primary Prevention Strategies for Intimate Partner Violence and Sexual Violence." This funding opportunity aims to build the evidence base for the primary prevention of intimate partner violence and sexual violence, including teen dating violence. The grant will support rigorous outcome evaluations of promising practice-based prevention approaches that are currently being implemented by state and/or local organizations. These approaches address intimate partner violence and/or sexual violence and have been in the field for a minimum of two years, demonstrating positive implementation-related outcomes. The research will evaluate the effectiveness of prevention approaches that have not been rigorously evaluated yet, with a focus on building evidence at the community- or societal-levels. The grant covers a four-year project period and aims to expand the evidence base for effective programs, policies, and practices that prevent intimate partner violence and sexual violence. The estimated total program funding is $6,000,000, with an expected number of three awards. The application due date is December 2, 2024, and the estimated award date is September 30, 2025.

Formative Research of Community-led Primary Prevention Approaches to Address Elevated Risk of Intimate Partner Violence & Sexual Violence
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - ERA
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention - ERA is forecasting a federal grant opportunity titled "Formative Research of Community-led Primary Prevention Approaches to Address Elevated Risk of Intimate Partner Violence & Sexual Violence". This grant aims to build the evidence base for the prevention of intimate partner violence (IPV) and sexual violence (SV) in communities at elevated risk. The grant seeks proposals for formative research of innovative primary prevention approaches that address inequities in IPV and SV. The selected prevention approach must be community-led and already implemented in the community. The research should focus on communities experiencing elevated risk, such as racial/ethnic minority groups, sexual and gender minority groups, and people with disabilities. The purpose of formative research is to strengthen the prevention approach, formalize components of the outcome evaluation, and conduct a pilot study to demonstrate efficacy for broader scale studies. Research on prevention approaches at the community or societal level, including those addressing social determinants of health, is strongly encouraged. The estimated total program funding is $2,250,000, with an award ceiling of $375,000. The grant is expected to result in two awards. The application deadline is December 2, 2024, at 11:59 pm ET.
