Funding: Sexual Violence Prevention -Shared Strategies with Impaired Driving Prevention

Did you know that motor vehicle safety and sexual violence share some risk and protective factors? Environmental strategies that reduce binge drinking have the power to reduce interpersonal and community violence, impaired driving, and more! 

Check out the funding announcement below to learn how to fund upstream strategies that improve safety and health across your community. 


The Sexual Violence Prevention (SVP) Program is pleased to announce the availability of funds to enhance community-level primary prevention across Colorado in an effort to address root causes of sexual violence.

The SVP Program recognizes that there are important shared upstream factors that increase or decrease the likelihood of sexual violence perpetration and multiple other forms of violence such as: weak health, educational, and social policies/laws; diminished economic opportunities/high unemployment rates; community support/connectedness (Connecting the Dots). By funding strategies to impact these upstream factors and modifying characteristics of the community, we can influence healthy social, economic, and environmental conditions that have a sustainable impact for all communities.

This funding opportunity will support this work across two critical focus areas: Creating Protective Environments and Providing Opportunities to Empower and Support Girls and Women.
