Current funding opportunities for projects related to our five-year plan, Our Plan for Impact, 2013-2018, are detailed below.

Preventing Injury - Open for Fall and Winter Grant Award Cycles

  • Through the grant-funded program Skills and Knowledge for Injury Prevention Partners (SKIPP) our community continues to take advantage of training and annual networking events to learn effective prevention strategies. We are encouraged by the diversity of focus areas and strategies used in active grant projects. However, we know more can be done to address the leading causes of Wake County childhood injury: motor vehicle crashes involving children; assaults and violence (i.e., physical/sexual violence, child abuse); self-inflicted injuries and self-harm (i.e., suicide, cutting); and falls. We will accept applications for both new projects as well as those that expand on currently funded Preventing Injury grants (see our 2017 Expansion Guidelines for information). Full details are provided in the Preventing Injury Request for Proposals.
