Announcing Newly-Funded Essentials for Childhood Grantees
On September 10, 2013, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention awarded cooperative agreements to five state health departments for its new initiative Essentials for Childhood: Safe, Stable, Nurturing Relationships & Environments to Prevent Child Maltreatment.

Health departments will receive funding for the next five years to support sustainable, multi-sectorial collective impact efforts that promote safe, stable, nurturing relationships and environments to prevent child maltreatment in the following states:
  • California,
  • Colorado,
  • Massachusetts,
  • North Carolina, and
  • Washington
Essentials for Childhood proposes strategies that promote relationships and environments that help children grow up to be healthy and productive citizens. Grantees will work on creating partnerships across multiple sectors to support child maltreatment prevention efforts.  In addition, they will identify, coordinate, monitor, and report on strategies implemented by multi-sector partners and establish state-level impact of these efforts.

Next Step
CDC’s Division of Violence Prevention will offer technical assistance to grantees and webinar trainings to all interested non-funded state health departments. Stay tuned for future webinar trainings on implementing Essentials for Childhood.
