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.
