Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) Competitive Grants under the Affordable Care Act

Through the Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) Competitive Grants under the Affordable Care Act, FYSB awards grants to local organizations and entities to educate young people on both abstinence and contraception. With efforts toward preventing pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, Competitive PREP targets young people who are:

  • Homeless
  • In foster care
  • Living in rural areas or areas with high teen birth rates
  • From minority groups (including sexual minorities)

Competitive PREP grants also support pregnant youth and mothers under the age of 21.
