Research Grants for Preventing Violence and Violence Related Injury (R01)

Funding Agency:
Centers for Disease Control and Prevention

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention's National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC) is soliciting investigator-initiated research that will help expand and advance our understanding about what works to prevent violence that impacts children and youth, collectively referred to as Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACEs), including child abuse and neglect, teen dating violence, sexual violence, youth violence, and exposure to adult intimate partner violence. 

This initiative is intended to support the evaluation of primary prevention programs, practices or policies that target universal or selected high-risk populations (i.e., populations that have one or more risk factors that place them at heightened risk for violence). Funds are available to conduct such studies focused on preventing child abuse and neglect and at least one other form of violence affecting children and youth, including teen dating violence, sexual violence, youth violence, and exposure to adult intimate partner violence.

Eligibility Requirements

Eligible applicant organizations may submit more than one application to this NOFO, provided that each application is scientifically distinct. However, applicant institutions can submit only one grant application with the same principal investigator in response to this NOFO. Only one application per principal investigator will be reviewed or funded under this announcement. If two or more applications from the same PI are received, the only application that will be submitted for review will be the last application received based on the document's time and date stamp in (



Amount Description

NCIPC intends to commit approximately $1,050,000 in FY 2020 to fund up to three (3) applications. Awards issued under this NOFO are contingent upon availability of funds and a sufficient number of meritorious applications. Because the nature and scope of the proposed research will vary from application to application, it is also anticipated that the size and duration of each award may also vary. The total amount awarded and the number of awards will depend upon the number, quality, duration and cost of the applications received and approved.

The maximum award amount will be $350,000 per award for the first 12 month budget period. This includes both direct and indirect costs. An applicant may request a project period of up to three years. The maximum total project funding amount is $1,050,000 (including both direct and indirect costs) over the expected project period length, with a maximum of $350,000 per award per year. The project period for this award is expected to run from 9/1/2020 to 8/31/2023
