The purpose of this report is to provide sexual violence prevention advocates and practitioners in Nebraska with support in choosing evidence-based or evidence-informed programs for implementation in their communities.

The beginning sections of this report will provide you with background information and a foundation for selecting a model. This includes information on the socio-ecological model, CDC strategies and approaches, evidence-based programs, evidence-informed practices, fidelity, appropriate adaptations, and considerations for rural communities. Our hope is for this information to provide you with the resources you need to determine what type of evidence-based or evidence-informed practice will be the best fit for your agency and your community.

This report also includes an interactive Evidence-Based Program Selection Tool. The tool begins by asking if you are looking for a program to implement in a school, community, or workplace setting. From there, additional questions are asked related to target audience, program outcomes, and program capacity. This tool will then provide you with suggestions for evidence-based programming grounded in your agency’s unique needs.

Finally, this report includes an index of evidence-based programs and evidence-informed practices based on socio-ecological levels, CDC strategies and approaches, dosage, cost, and other program characteristics.
