Purpose

This program (short title:Tribal PREP) provides grants to support education projects for American Indian/Alaska Native (AI/AN) youth between the ages of 10 and 19, and pregnant and parenting youth under age 21, on both abstinence and contraception for the prevention of pregnancy, sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and human immunodeficiency virus (HIV)/acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS).

Funding will support the design, implementation, and sustainability of culturally and linguistically appropriate youth pregnancy prevention programs that replicate evidence-based effective programs, substantially incorporate elements of effective programs, and include promising practices within the AI/AN tribal communities.

  • Healthy relationships
  • Adolescent development
  • Financial literacy
  • Parent-child communication
  • Educational and career success
  • Healthy life skills

Additional youth populations who are considered high-risk and vulnerable for pregnancies and STIs include:

  • Systems involved youth
  • Rural youth
  • Homeless youth
  • Lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) youth
  • Out-of-school youth
  • Fathers who are under 21 years of age
