Program Description

The Office of Adolescent Health is responsible for implementing and administering the national, evidence based Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) Program, a competitive grant program. The OAH TPP program is one of a growing number of federal programs that focus on providing evidence of what works, investing in new and innovative approaches, and fostering a culture of learning. A second cohort of grantees was awarded in July 2015. Eighty-one TPP grants were awarded for a five-year project period and are expected to serve over 290,000 youth each year and over 1.2 million youth over the course of the five-year project period.
