Description: The purpose of this funding is to support recipients in measuring, tracking, and preventing adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) in their states. Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs) are preventable, potentially traumatic events that occur in childhood (0-17 years) such as experiencing violence, abuse, or neglect; witnessing violence in the home; and having a family member attempt or die by suicide. Also included are aspects of the child’s environment that can undermine their sense of safety, stability, and bonding such as growing up in a household with substance misuse, mental health problems, or instability due to parental separation or incarceration of a parent, sibling or other member of the household. Currently, ACEs are difficult to track over time because they do not always come to the attention of agencies that compile publicly available administrative data and because the best surveillance data currently available for ACEs, such as those collected through the Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System (BRFSS), are from retrospective surveys with adults. These challenges make it difficult to assess current prevalence, track change over time, target prevention strategies, and measure the success of prevention strategies. In addition, to date, efforts to implement data-driven, comprehensive, evidence-based prevention strategies have been lacking in communities across the U.S This NOFO will support the implementation of data-driven, comprehensive, evidence-based prevention strategies by building a surveillance infrastructure for the collection, analysis, and application of such ACEs data, so that states can monitor the prevalence of ACEs experiences among youth within their states and then use those data to inform prevention efforts at the state and community level. In tandem, this NOFO also provides resources to support states in implementing primary prevention strategies for preventing ACEs. Therefore, there are two overall required strategies of this award that focus on surveillance and primary prevention. The work of these strategies, and the infrastructure and expertise exerted to accomplish that work, should be interdependent and should be planned and implemented as part of a dynamic system that reflects the 10 Essential Public Health Services promoted by CDC.
