Affordable Care Act Tribal Personal Responsibility Education Program for Teen Pregnancy Prevention: The Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Administration on Children, Youth and Families (ACYF), Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) announces the availability of funding in the form of discretionary, competitive grants to Indian Tribes and tribal organizations to support the development and implementation of comprehensive, teen pregnancy prevention programs. The Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) emphasizes a medically accurate approach, replicating effective programs or elements of programs that have been proven -- on the basis of rigorous, scientific research -- to change behavior. Behavioral changes may include delaying sexual activity, increasing condom or contraceptive use for sexually active youth, or reducing pregnancy. The inclusion of "adulthood preparation subjects" -- to help youth in their transition to young adulthood -- is also a key element of this program. Consultation with Indian Tribes and Tribal organizations, as required by the authorizing legislation, will inform the development of the Tribal PREP program.
