Announcement of Availability of Funds for Replication of Programs Proven Effective through Rigorous Evaluation to Reduce Teenage Pregnancy, Behavioral Risk Factors Underlying Teenage Pregnancy, or Other Associated Risk Factors (Tier 1) Phase I

Grant Opportunities

The purpose of this funding opportunity announcement (FOA) is to replicate programs that have been proven effective through rigorous evaluation to reduce teenage pregnancy, behavioral risk factors underlying teenage pregnancy, or other associated risk factors. Phase I Tier 1 projects will identify how to bring effective programs to scale and build the knowledge base on understanding what elements/components/factors are important to broad program success.

Applicants should replicate one or more effective programs in a community(ies) and/or among populations identified by current federal statistical reports as being most vulnerable to teen pregnancy, STDs, multiple partners, and other risks associated with sexual activity. Applicants may also select a community(ies) and/or populations within the community that have not experienced declines in teenage pregnancy or other associated risk factors commensurate with national declines.

Applicants are expected to propose to serve age groups most likely to engage in sexual risk behaviors. While younger adolescents may be included in the project, OAH expects that services will also focus on adolescents 15-19 years of age, recognizing the importance of reinforcing healthy decision-making throughout adolescence. Each selected community must be defined by clear geographic boundaries in order to assure that the number of youth served can be identified and rates of teenage pregnancy and other associated risk factors can be monitored.
