HISTORY

Intimate partner violence (IPV) is a significant public health problem with serious consequences for victims, families, and communities. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) provides funding, networking opportunities, training, and technical assistance to prevent first-time perpetration and victimization of intimate partner violence (IPV), also called primary prevention.

The CDC has supported domestic violence coalitions’ efforts for primary prevention of IPV through DELTA (Domestic Violence Prevention Enhancements and Leadership Through Alliances), funded since 2002 via the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act (FVPSA), and DELTA PREP (Preparing and Raising Expectations for Prevention), a project funded from 2008-2011 by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation in collaboration with the CDC and the CDC Foundation.

The DELTA PREP project provided state-level domestic violence coalitions not receiving DELTA Program funding with an opportunity for building their primary prevention efforts.

DELTA PREP grantees received training, technical assistance and a small amount of funding to incorporate primary prevention in their coalition and community and state IPV efforts. The DELTA PREP project has been informed by the successes and lessons of the DELTA Program.
