Through the Tribal Personal Responsibility Education Program (Tribal PREP), FYSB awards grants to Tribes and Tribal communities to develop and implement abstinence and contraceptive education adolescent pregnancy prevention programs
Through the State Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP), FYSB awards grants to State agencies to educate young people on both abstinence and contraception to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections, including HIV/AIDS. The program targets youth ages 10–19 who are homeless, in foster care, live in rural areas or in geographic areas with high teen birth rates, or come from racial or ethnic minority groups. The program also supports pregnant and parenting youth.
The Family and Youth Services Bureau is sponsoring a federal evaluation of the PREP program. This report describes the overall goals of the study, explains how sites were selected, and provides an overview of the four sites.
“Locate a Teen Pregnancy Prevention Trainer” is a database of the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) grantees that provide training for facilitators and trainers in the 35 evidence-based curricula approved by HHS.
In January 2015, ACF gave Congress a report about the progress of PREP programs across the nation. The reporting period for the report was August 1, 2013, through July 31, 2014. This brief summarizes the findings.
These grants fund programs that promote proven and culturally appropriate methods for reducing adolescent pregnancy, delaying sexual activity among youths, and increasing condom use and other contraceptives among sexually active youth in native communities.
