COMMUNITY PREVENTION GRANTEES
Twelve communities receive prevention funds from CDVSA to create community based, coalition driven, culturally relevant, prevention plans and programming that serve to enhance efforts to stop violent behaviors before they start. There are two types of prevention grants funded through the CDVSA: the Community Based Primary Prevention Program Grants (CBPPP) and the Community Readiness and Capacity Building Grants (CR). The purpose of the CBPPP grants are to strengthen and enhance existing prevention efforts thus becoming more comprehensive in their reach by bringing existing efforts to new populations and settings. The CR grants provide opportunities for communities without primary prevention program experience to conduct community-level assessments, establish or integrate primary prevention into existing coalitions, and develop customized prevention plans for program implementation.
