Purpose

Working with Publicly Funded Health Centers to Reduce Teen Pregnancy among Youth from Vulnerable Populations grants will award funding to create networks of publicly-funded health centers that will work with other vulnerable youth-serving entities to create linkages of care and make referrals with the intention of reducing the teen birth rate and increasing the accessibility and usage of sexual and reproductive health services.

All proposed strategies and approaches should contribute to the long-term outcomes of reduction in teen pregnancy and births

Vulnerable youth include those at risk of health disparities due to:

  • Geography (e.g., remote rural areas with limited services, marginalized urban communities)
  • Low socioeconomic status (SES)
  • Race/ethnicity
  • Exposure to social determinants negatively affecting health (e.g., poor housing, poor education, stressful neighborhood environment, high community unemployment, etc.)
  • Being out of school
  • Living in foster care
  • Homelessness
  • Having experienced trauma or abuse
  • Involvement with juvenile justice
  • Substance abuse
  • Being a pregnant/expecting teen or a teen parent
