Utah Department of Health (UDOH) - Division of Disease Control and Prevention - Bureau of Health Promotion - Violence and Injury Prevention Program (VIPP)

Grants starting at $20,000 per year to Utah nonprofit organizations, community coalitions, and local and tribal governments for community-level programs to prevent the perpetration of gender violence, particularly among underserved populations. All organizations must implement 75% of their activities at the community-level.
The funding will provided to communities to implement primary prevention strategies that reduce sexual violence perpetration in the state of Utah, including childhood sexual violence, particularly in underserved communities, with a focus on community-level approaches and shared risk and protective factors.
Programs with an intentional focus on reducing health disparities related to violence, especially among underserved communities, are encouraged. The UDOH/VIPP approaches sexual violence from a public health perspective, recognizing that primary prevention, including efforts to change cultural norms, behaviors, and practices is essential to create a community climate free from violence. Programs should aim to implement community-level strategies in order to create broad-based changes.
Using a primary prevention approach, efforts must focus on addressing the root causes and underlying risk and protective factors for sexual violence, which includes a framing around the prevention of perpetration, rather than victimization. Because SV impacts whole health, the funding source is interested in primary prevention strategies that have the potential to impact multiple health outcomes by addressing common (or shared) underlying risk and protective factors.
