DELTA Project with CDC

The growing recognition of domestic violence as a public health problem has introduced new funding sources and initiatives to prevent first-time perpetration. In order to address these serious adverse outcomes, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention's (CDC) DELTA (Domestic Violence Prevention Enhancements and Leadership Through Alliances) project was created to fund state coalitions to build prevention capacity within their organizations, states, and local communities.

The North Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence has participated in the DELTA Collaborative since its inception in 2002.

DELTA FOCUS (Focusing on Outcomes for Communities United with States) isa  five-year cooperative agreement funding 10 state domestic violence coalition grantees to engage in primary prevention of intimate partner violence (IPV). Primary prevention means stopping IPV before it occurs.

DELTA FOCUS builds on DELTA's history by providing focused funding to states and communities for intensive implementation and evaluation of IPV primary prevention strategies that address the social and structural determinants of health at the societal and community levels of the social-ecological model (SEM).

DELTA FOCUS works to implement and evaluate prevention strategies within the organization, state, and local communities.

NC DELTA FOCUS funding supports prevention projects in two communities. Since 2002, NCCADV has collaborated closely with two local coordinated community response teams (CCRs) to provide tools, training, and technical assistance to promote primary prevention and to plan, implement, and evaluate primary prevention strategies.

Prevent Violence NC is a cooperative effort by NCCADV and four statewide agencies to encourage coordinated violence prevention initiatives across North Carolina. Here you’ll find the latest research and resources to help build key community, family, and individual strengths to prevent violence and promote health.

Intimate Partner Violence and Sexual Violence Data Source Inventory
Created in collaboration by: North Carolina Coalition Against Domestic Violence, DELTA Project, North Carolina Injury & Violence Prevention Branch, North Carolina EMPOWER Project.

The purpose of this document is to make data sources related to intimate partner violence, domestic violence, and sexual violence more accessible to local and state level agencies in North Carolina doing work related to these topics. In this inventory, each key, relevant data source and the type of data it offers has been summarized so that practitioners can quickly identify which data sources will be most useful to their work.

EVE’s PEACE Toolkit
As part of the North Carolina’s 10-Year Plan to Prevent Intimate Partner Violence, NCCADV, in collaboration with faith leaders from across the state, developed this toolkit, Ending Violence by Establishing Policies to Enhance and Create Equity, or EVE’s PEACE, for use by faith leaders to clarify best practices and model policies in the identification, referral, response and prevention of domestic violence. The goal of the toolkit is to increase the capacity of among faith leaders and communities to engage in work which shifts the norms, attitudes and beliefs of individuals, peer groups, families and communities to increase support of healthy relationships and to improve the response to domestic violence within their congregations. The toolkit can be used independently and in addition to training on preventing and responding to domestic violence.

Catalog of Evidence-Based And Promising Practices
This catalog of evidence-based and promising practices was compiled in collaboration with the North Carolina DELTA State Steering Committee in 2009. Committee members used this catalog when developing North Carolina’s 10-Year Plan to Prevent Intimate Partner Violence to inform their recommendation of dating violence prevention and healthy relationship promotion programming for use in community, faith and school-based settings.

Catalog of Intimate Partner Violence Prevention Programs and Curricula for Post-Secondary Institutions.
This catalog offers a collection of evidence-based and promising practices for IPV prevention on college and university campuses. It provides a description of selected programs along with key features including the population served, goals and objectives, delivery method, and the resources required for implementation of the program.
