Research Funding Opportunity
Research Grants for Preventing Violence and Violence-Related Injury (RO1)

On November 8, 2019, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released RFA-CE-20-003, Research Grants for Preventing Violence and Violence- Related Injury. CDC intends to commit up to $1,050,000 in Fiscal Year 2020 to support up to three awards. The agency is soliciting investigator-initiated research that will help expand and advance knowledge about what works to prevent violence by rigorously evaluating primary prevention strategies in any of three areas.

CDC seeks to support research that rigorously evaluates primary prevention programs, practices, or policies to address specific gaps in the prevention of violence impacting children and youth. Adverse childhood experiences (ACEs), including exposure to violence, can negatively affect health across the lifespan. The specific research objectives focus on evaluating the effectiveness of:

  • Community-level or societal-level strategies to prevent multiple forms of violence and other ACEs that impact children and youth
  • Strategies that enhance protective factors to reduce violence against children or within families
  • Strategies that incorporate a dual-generation approach for caregivers and their children to break the cycle of violence and adversity
Violence is a significant public health problem in the United States with more than 67,000 deaths and nearly 2.3 million nonfatal injuries treated in emergency departments in 2017. The CDC’s National Center for Injury Prevention and Control Division of Violence Prevention works to stop violence before it begins.
