Description: The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC or Injury Center) is soliciting research proposals to expand the evidence base for the primary prevention of youth violence. The purpose of this announcement is to fund the National Centers of Excellence in Youth Violence Prevention (Youth Violence Prevention Centers or YVPCs) to continue to build the evidence-base for violence prevention strategies and approaches that reduce community rates of youth violence within one or more geographically defined, high-burden communities. YVPCs supported under this announcement must include 4 core features: (1) an administrative infrastructure to support implementation, evaluation, and dissemination activities; to foster necessary local collaborations to achieve the YVPC’s goals; and to work with other funded YVPCs as part of the YVPC Network; (2) rigorous evaluation of at least two distinct prevention strategies related to at least two of the four research areas outlined in this NOFO that are designed to reduce community rates of youth violence in a high-burden community or set of communities; (3) integrated training activities for junior and future researchers in youth violence prevention to complement the implementation, rigorous evaluation, and scholarship activities of the YVPC; and (4) a youth advisory council to provide input on the selection, implementation, and evaluation of youth violence prevention strategies.
