Equity-Focused Approaches for Injury and Violence Prevention Seed Grants
Safe States is now accepting applications for three seed grants of $25,000 each to advance the vision outlined in a recent special convening of the Injury and Violence Prevention Network (IVPN). The IVPN special convening took place in December 2021 to further mobilize IVPN members and supporting colleagues to identify opportunities for the IVP field to collectively realize a vision for addressing inequities through partnership and policy activities.
The summary report from this meeting highlights discussions that:
• Established a mutual intention for exploring the possibilities of addressing racial and health inequities in the IVP field.
• Identified where the intersections exist that connect our daily IVP work to equity and justice approaches.
• Analyzed successes, challenges, and barriers to addressing inequities in our IVP activities.
• Developed a shared vision of opportunities, actions, and responsibilities to address equity in our IVP partnership and policy strategies.
Through this current Request for Proposals (RFP), Safe States will award three seed grants of $25,000 each for use from March – September 2022 to operationalize and integrate equitable approaches to advance one or more of the needs identified during the IVPN special convening.
