The Office of Population Affairs at the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services today announced the award of $19,285,680 for 13 new grants to organizations for “Tier 2 Innovation and Impact Network Grants: Achieving Optimal Health and Preventing Teen Pregnancy in Key Priority Areas.” The grants start on July 15, 2020 for a three-year project period.
Funded grantees will establish, fund, coordinate, and support a multidisciplinary network of partners to develop and test innovative interventions in seven key priority areas and will disseminate those interventions that demonstrate effectiveness. Priority areas represent critical systems, populations, and/or program components for which significant and strategic investment in innovation and testing is necessary to make an impact on optimal adolescent health, teen pregnancy, and STIs. The funded grantees include three grantees addressing the youth access to and experience with sexual healthcare priority area; two grantees addressing each of the following priority areas: caregivers, expectant and parenting youth, foster care/child welfare, and youth with disabilities; and one grantee addressing the juvenile justice priority area and one grantee addressing the youth engagement priority area.
