The Empowerment Evaluation project is a three year collaborative effort between the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the North Dakota Council on Abused Women’s Services, the North Dakota Department of Health and the Center for Rural Health who will work with up to 19 local agencies providing intimate partner and sexual assault prevention services. The project began in February 2006.
The purpose of the Empowerment Evaluation project is to conduct an overall program evaluation and assist with capacity building of intimate partner and sexual violence evaluation efforts at the local and state level, making contributions to a similar national effort involving 14 other state coalitions. . . .
