The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) will provide funding for non-research activities that leverage multi-sector partnerships and resources to improve adverse childhood experiences (ACEs) and positive childhood experiences (PCEs).

Funding recipients should work to:

  • Enhance a state-level surveillance infrastructure that ensures the capacity to collect, analyze, and use ACE and PCE data to inform prevention strategy implementation
  • Implement data-driven, comprehensive, evidence-based ACEs primary prevention strategies and approaches, particularly with a focus on health equity
  • Conduct data-to-action activities on an ongoing basis to inform changes or adaptations to existing prevention strategies or selection and implementation of additional prevention strategies

Projects should work to reduce health disparities, improve health equity, and improve social determinants of health among populations at greatest risk, including, but not limited to:

  • People with disabilities
  • Non-English speaking populations
  • Tribal populations
  • Rural communities
  • Other geographically underserved areas
  • Racial and ethnic minorities
  • Sexual and gender minorities
  • People with limited health literacy

Projects should address health disparities in ACEs and PCEs by focusing efforts on the social determinants of health, such as:

  • Economic stability - Children in poverty rates, unemployment rates
  • Ensuring a strong start for children - Availability of child care centers and cost burden, school funding adequacy
  • Structural factors that contribute to instability for children and families - Food insecurity and access, access to healthcare providers, high housing cost

Eligible applicants:

  • State, territory, county, city, township, and special district governments or their bona fide agents
  • Federally recognized native American tribal governments
  • Independent school districts
  • Public, state controlled, and private institutions of higher education
