Abuse and Exploitation Prevention Strategic Planning


DDPC announces funding to select one grantee in the amount of $75,000 to carry out an 18-month research grant, focused on the systematic information gathering including a review of existing literature and programming, as well as qualitative research, with the intended outcome of a strategic plan and recommendations for the DDPC to more adequately work in the area of exploitation and abuse prevention.

As more and more people are moving out into the community, the need for good prevention methods is increasing. The goal of this project is for one grantee to research the topic of abuse and exploitation prevention, and to write a strategic plan the DDPC can follow in order to do more targeted work in this area. The grantee will hold focus groups and interviews with individuals, as well as do background research and understand the materials that exist and their strengths and weakness. The grantee will then make recommendations for work to do in this area.
