Tier 1 provides funding for the replication of evidence-based interventions in community, school, and faith-based settings.  The Office of Adolescent Health identified programs that had been proven effective through rigorous evaluation to reduce teen pregnancy, behavioral risks underlying teen pregnancy, or other associated risk factors.  An estimated 150 grants will be given to nonprofits, small businesses, schools, colleges, hospitals, and other groups (see the Application Kit FAQ).   Non-mandatory letters of intent are due May 3, and applications are due June 1, 2010.

Tier 2 funding provides funding for research and demonstration grants to develop, replicate, refine, and test additional models and innovative strategies for preventing teenage pregnancy. The purpose of these funds is to implement and test a broad range of approaches to teenage pregnancy prevention with a focus on program interventions that are most likely to demonstrate a change in sexual behavior.  An estimated 45 grants will be given to nonprofits, small businesses, schools, colleges, hospitals, and other groups.  Non-mandatory letters of intent are due on May 10, 2010.  Applications are due June 8, 2010.
