Safe States & South to Southwest RNL Webinar Series:

Preparing for Core Funding


The webinar series Preparing for Core Funding, will identify and address questions of states interested in applying for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) funding to support core activities of state health department injury prevention programs. The funding announcement is tentatively scheduled to be available in spring of 2016.


The series is sponsored by the South to Southwest Injury Prevention Network, and is conducted in partnership with the Safe States Alliance, its State Directors Special Interest Group, and the regional network leaders for the Great Lakes and Mid-Atlantic Regional Network, the Northeast and Caribbean Injury Prevention Network, the Western Pacific Injury Prevention Network, and Health and Human Services regions 7 & 8. 


Goals of the series:

  • Provide a venue for peer-to-peer information sharing;
  • Provide information on the elements needed to be a successful state injury prevention program;
  • Provide information and tools that can help build any needed capacity in advance of the funding announcement’s release; and
  • Respond to evolving needs of the injury prevention community as new information comes to light about the funding announcement.
