Agency: Administration for Children and Families (HHS); Program: Affordable Care Act Tribal Personal Responsibility Education Program for Teen Pregnancy Prevention (CFDA Number: 93.092) (Funding Opportunity Number: HHS-2016-ACF-ACYF-AT-1130); Eligibility: Tribal governments and organizations; Funding: $3.4 million for 10 awards; Deadline: July 8.
Summary: The program supports the development of comprehensive, teen pregnancy prevention programs on tribal lands. PREP emphasizes a medically accurate approach that has been proven to change behavior. Behavioral changes may include delaying sexual activity, increasing condom or contraceptive use for sexually active youth or reducing pregnancy. The inclusion of “adulthood preparation subjects” — to help youth in their transition to young adulthood — is also a key element of this program.
