The Family and Youth Services Bureau needs YOUR EXPERT GUIDANCE to develop a teen pregnancy prevention program just for Tribes and Tribal organizations.
The new Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) has $3.25 million this fiscal year to fund comprehensive teen pregnancy prevention programs in Native communities. In order to develop the overall Tribal PREP, as well as the Funding Opportunity Announcement, we have held a series of in-person consultation sessions and national conference calls with Tribal leaders and community members (including but not limited to program directors and staff, youth, health care practitioners, and educators).
