Office of Adolescent Health FOA: Centers for Teen Pregnancy Prevention and Adolescent Health Promotion Researchhttps://www.hhs.gov/ash/oah/grants/open-grants.html
The Office of Adolescent Health announces the anticipated availability of funds for Fiscal Year (FY) 2017 cooperative agreements for organizations to conduct, synthesize and translate research into practice for the prevention of teen pregnancy and promotion of adolescent health and in support of OAH’s priorities and mission.  Funded organizations are expected to address important and relevant topic areas in pregnancy prevention and adolescent health and to be a national leader in one of five priority areas affecting teen pregnancy.  The priority areas are (1) safe and supportive environments, (2) healthy relationships, (3) meaningful connections to supportive adults, (4) engaging youth and families, and (5) youth in out-of-home care and foster care systems.  Funded organizations are expected to evaluate or assess best practices or evidence-based/evidence-informed approaches in their priority area and make that information easily accessible to providers working with youth to prevent teen pregnancy.
Funded organizations are expected to have a high caliber of scientific and technical competency, be forward-looking, provide strong leadership, and collaborate with stakeholders and community partners including state and local health agencies and non-profit, community (including youth and parents) and non-governmental organizations in the development and delivery of research to practice products.
OAH anticipates funding three cooperative agreements each with an annual budget of up to $500,000.  OAH will fund no more than one cooperative agreement per priority area. Organizations may apply for more than one priority area; however, each application may only address a single priority area.  The three funded organizations will be expected to coordinate and collaborate with each other and OAH.  To learn more, please visit the Open Grants page of our website, or view the announcement on Grants.gov.
