New and at times substantial federal policy and legislative advances are providing enhanced opportunities to support violence prevention and response initiatives in health and public health settings. Significant funds from the American Rescue Package and other programs are starting to reach communities. What new and important initiatives are arising out of DC? How can local and regional stakeholders, care providers, and other interested parties s help direct how funds are allocated? How might Build Back Better impact efforts to support the health and wellbeing of survivors and their families? How do policies and laws like the child tax credit and Violence Against Women Act promote violence prevention efforts by addressing the root causes of violence? How can health providers become engaged in translating policy into practice? The National Health Collaborative on Violence and Abuse (NHCVA) 2022 “DC update” will inform participants about new initiatives that enhance response to and promote prevention of, violence and abuse.
