Contracts for services to North Carolina nonprofit organizations and government agencies to address gender-based violence. Applicants are advised that required registrations may take several weeks to finalize. Funding is intended for community and societal programs to reduce risk factors and increase protective factors for sexual violence perpetration, with the intended long-term impact of reducing the incidence of rape and sexual violence in the state.

The goal of the NC RPE program is to reduce risk factors and increase protective factors for sexual violence perpetration, with the intended long-term impact of reducing the incidence of rape and sexual violence in the state. The means to achieve this goal include providing a broad array of primary prevention strategies that address multiple avenues of influence on behavior. This RFA’s objectives in support of this goal are to:

  1. Implement local sexual violence primary prevention strategies and activities that are aligned with community needs and strengths and the best available evidence about sexual violence primary prevention;
  2. Increase local efforts focused on community and societal-level approaches to sexual violence primary prevention;
  3. Increase coordination among organizations and community groups in support of violence prevention;
  4. Increase the integration of health equity strategies in sexual violence primary prevention activities and partnerships; and
  5. Increase process and outcome evaluation of primary prevention efforts.

The NC RPE Program is committed to promoting health equity in North Carolina. Health equity is when all people, regardless of their identities or circumstances, have full, fair, and just opportunity to attain their highest level of health. Building toward health equity requires working to end health disparities, or preventable differences in health outcomes. To achieve health equity, the root causes of health disparities, such as poverty, racism, sexism, and ableism must be addressed.

Category Selection:

Applicants must use a minimum of either 35% or 75% of their budgeted staff time to work on community or societal level strategies, depending on the funding Category they select. The remainder of staff time may be spent on individual/relationship level strategies.

  1. Applicants demonstrating a minimum of 35% time spent on community or societal strategies will be eligible to receive $70,000 per year. These applicants will be applying under Category A.
  2. All applicants demonstrating a minimum of 75% time spent on community or societal level change will be eligible to receive $87,000 per year. These applicants will be applying under Category B.

Funding is open to private, non-profit 501(c)(3) organizations and public or local governmental agencies, excluding colleges and universities, in North Carolina that can clearly demonstrate a commitment to the primary prevention of sexual violence. Although North Carolina colleges and universities are ineligible to apply for this cycle of Rape Prevention and Education funding, the NC RPE Program is committed to the continued support of North Carolina’s colleges and universities through training and technical assistance provided by the North Carolina Coalition Against Sexual Assault (NCCASA) and the NC Campus Consortium.

This opportunity is open to organizations that do not have addressing sexual violence as their primary mission, provided they have the capacity to complete the requirements of the Request for Applications.

Private non-profit organizations and public or local governmental agencies may also apply as a lead organization and fiscal sponsor of a multi-organization coalition that includes grassroots community organizations. While all applicants are required to partner with community stakeholders, applicants who apply as lead organizations and fiscal sponsors should be engaged in intensive collaboration. This includes shared decision-making, as well as shared resources, staffing, and/or funding via subcontract(s) with other organizations in the coalition. Multi-organization coalition applicants should be able to demonstrate previous collaborative community-level work.
