The Office of Population Affairs at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services announced the award of $12,640,189 for 13 new grants to organizations to “Optimally Changing the Map for Teen Pregnancy Prevention (Tier 1).” The grants start on July 1, 2021, for a two-year project period.
Funded grantees will aim to have a significant impact on improving the health of adolescents and reducing teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections through saturation of communities with the greatest needs and disparities by using a systems thinking approach to replicate effective programs with fidelity. The 13 grantees will implement effective programs in communities that have demonstrated great need across eight states and the Republic of the Marshall Islands. States served by grantees will include California, Florida, Indiana, Kentucky, Minnesota, New York, North Carolina, and Texas.
