DELTA PREP (Preparing and Raising Expectations for Prevention) is a 4-year collaborative effort between Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the CDC Foundation and the project’s funder, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation. Funded from 2008-2011, the project supported 19 state-level domestic violence coalitions to build organizational capacities to address intimate partner violence primary prevention. Lessons learned from this important project are key to understanding promising practices in capacity building for domestic violence prevention programming. For more information and core primary prevention resources, see the related Special Collection: Models in Prevention – CDC’s DELTA Program.
DELTA PREP Online Toolkit
The DELTA PREP Toolkit was developed by the DELTA PREP project, a collaboration of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the CDC Foundation and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation in support of 19 state domestic violence coalitions to build their organizational capacity for primary prevention of IPV. The Toolkit is a resource for state and community organizations that are engaging in primary prevention efforts and are interested in strengthening their organization’s ability to sustain and build upon their prevention work. The tools in this interactive Toolkit were used by the DELTA PREP project participant coalitions, and the materials have been informed by the experiences of these organizations. It is notable that DELTA PREP coalitions have continued to enhance and expand their primary prevention efforts since the Foundation project grant period ended in November 2011.
