NEW Research Funding Opportunity Announcement
Rigorously Evaluating Approaches to Preventing Adult-Perpetrated Child Sex Abuse (CSA)
Application Due Date: 05/29/2020
On March 26, 2020, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) released RFA-CE-20-005, Rigorously Evaluating Approaches to Prevent Adult-Perpetrated Child Sex Abuse (CSA). Please visit Grants.gov for the most current information and click on the red Subscribe button to be automatically notified of updates.
The purpose is to solicit investigator-initiated research to rigorously evaluate approaches (programs, policies, or practices) for their impact on primary prevention of child sexual abuse (CSA) perpetrated by adults. CSA is defined here broadly as sexual victimization during childhood (before 18 years of age). CSA is a preventable adverse childhood experience (ACE) and a serious threat to the health and development of children in the United States. Research funded under this announcement will strengthen the evidence base for primary prevention of adult-perpetrated CSA. Applicants must propose rigorous evaluation designs, which for the purposes of this funding opportunity can include experimental or quasi- experimental designs.
The intent of this announcement is to support the rigorous evaluation of an approach for the primary prevention of adult-perpetrated CSA that addresses one of the following three research priorities:
Research Priority One: Existing approaches for the primary prevention of adult-perpetrated CSA that have not yet been rigorously evaluated and shown to be effective for the primary prevention of adult-perpetrated CSA.
Research Priority Two: Existing evidence-based approaches that have empirical evidence of effectiveness in reducing other forms of violence but have not been rigorously evaluated for their effectiveness in the primary prevention of adult-perpetrated CSA.
Research Priority Three: Community- or societal-level approaches that address the primary prevention of adult-perpetrated CSA but have not been rigorously evaluated for their effectiveness in the primary prevention of adult-perpetrated CSA.
NCIPC intends to commit up to $800,000 in fiscal year 2020 to support up to two (2) awards. The total amount awarded, and the number of awards will depend upon the number, quality, duration and cost of applications received and approved.
