Agency: Health & Human Services Dept. (HHS) Office of Public Health and Science, Office of Population Affairs, Office of Family Planning; Program: Family Planning Services Grants- Louisiana (CFDA Number: 93.217) (Funding Opportunity Number: PA-FPH-17-007); Eligibility: Louisiana — schools, for-profits, governments and nonprofits (including faith-based and community organizations); Funding (estimated): $4.6 million for one award (no match required); Deadline (tentative): March (NOFA will be posted soon).
Summary: The grants support Louisiana voluntary family planning services projects, including those offering family planning for adolescents — like sex education. Nearly all U.S. teens have had formal sex education, but only about two-thirds have been taught birth control methods, according to a government report. Local and regional public or private nonprofit entities may apply directly to the HHS for a Title X family planning services grant.
