This program provides grants to evaluate practice-based prevention approaches to increase the evidence for sexual violence prevention programs, policies, or practices that have traction within the sexual violence field and are, therefore, feasible to implement by practitioners and acceptable to communities. Proposals to address the needs of communities experiencing disproportionate burden of sexual violence, including but not limited to, people with disabilities, non-English speaking populations, tribal populations, rural communities and other geographically underserved areas, sexual and gender minorities, and people with limited health literacy are strongly encouraged.
