These grants support abstinence education programming, an intervention in a continuum of services that seeks to prevent teen pregnancy. The purpose of the Competitive Abstinence Education (CAE) Grant Program is to provide funding to address the rates of teen pregnancy among adolescent youth who are at greatest risk of STDs/STIs and most likely to bear children out of wedlock. Programs focus on the social, psychological, and health gains to be realized by delaying initiation of sexual activity and engaging in healthy relationships.
