Academic Centers of Excellence on Youth Violence Prevention Program Information System—New—National Center for Injury Prevention and Control (NCIPC), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).
Background and Brief Description
Eight Academic Centers of Excellence on Youth Violence Prevention (ACEs) and two Urban Partnerships—Academic Centers of Excellence on Youth Violence Prevention (U-PACEs) are currently funded through CDC to foster and promote a stable, visible, long term strategy to address the complex problem of youth violence. The centers work with community members and many educational, justice and social work partners to develop action plans, partnerships, and priorities to prevent youth violence in a local community.
In addition, one ACE Coordinating Center is funded to initiate, foster, and support coordinated efforts, including the development and dissemination of activities and products in youth violence research and practice, among the ACEs, UPACEs, and CDC. It also aims to facilitate increased collaboration among organizations working to prevent youth violence to support the sustainability of youth violence prevention programs.
The Academic Centers of Excellence on Youth Violence Prevention Program Information System will collect, in electronic format: (a) Data needed to measure progress toward, or achievement of, performance indicators and other outcomes and (b) information on Academic Centers of Excellence on Youth Violence Prevention that is currently being collected in various electronic and paper documents.
An Internet-based information system will allow CDC to monitor, and report on, ACE activities more efficiently. Data reported to CDC through the ACE information system will be used by CDC to identify training and technical assistance needs, monitor compliance with cooperative agreement requirements, evaluate the progress made in achieving center-specific goals, and obtain information needed to respond to Congressional and other inquiries regarding program activities and effectiveness.
There are no costs to respondents except their time to enter data into the Information System. Start Printed Page 18263
