COMMUNITY PREVENTION GRANTEES
Thirteen 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. The purpose of the Primary Prevention Program Grants (PPPG) is to strengthen and enhance existing prevention efforts thus becoming more comprehensive in their reach by bringing existing efforts to new populations and settings. During the current funding cycle, SFY22-SFY24, grantees are emphasizing a focus on a shared risk and protective factors. A shared risk and protective factor approach to gender -based violence prevention, recognizes that there are many factors influencing a person’s social and health related outcomes, this approach supports coordinating efforts across systems to address the whole person. In Alaska, this means an approach that accounts for historical trauma, adverse childhood experiences, and institutionalized systems of inequity.
