Annotation: This announcement by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) addresses the availability of fiscal year 1994 funds for cooperative agreements to create multifaceted community-based Violence Against Women (VAW) prevention demonstration projects.
Abstract: Multifaceted programs incorporate multiple interventions aimed at reducing the incidence of violence against women that results in injury or death. Programs should be community-based and tailored to meet the specific needs of the community, including the most effective strategies and personnel. For the purposes of this announcement, the area of attention is in primary prevention of violence against adolescent (12 years old and older) and adult women by persons known to the victim (family members, partners, and intimates) rather than by strangers. Approximately $1,375,000 is available in fiscal year 1994 to fund up to five demonstration projects. Awards are expected to range from $250,000 to $300,000, with an average award of $275,000, and are expected to begin on or about September 30, 1994. Applications may be submitted by public and private, nonprofit and for-profit organizations as well as governments and their agencies. Information in this announcement includes program requirements, technical reporting requirements, application content, evaluation criteria, funding priorities, executive order 12372 review, public health system reporting requirements, and the catalog of Federal domestic assistance numbers. Application submission and deadlines are also indicated.
