PREP At A Glance

Generic Fact Sheet image

The Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) funds evidence-based programs dedicated to educating adolescents on both abstinence and contraception to prevent pregnancy and STIs. PREP also educates youth on adulthood preparation topics such as healthy relationships, parent-child communication, and financial literacy. The program targets youth age 10–19 who are homeless, in foster care, live in rural areas or in geographic areas with high teen birth rates, or come from racial or ethnic minority groups, as well as pregnant and parenting youth. PREP includes formula grants to states (or competitive grants to organizations in the states that decline the formula grants), grants to tribes and tribal organizations, and grants for research and demonstration projects to implement and evaluate innovative strategies. This fact sheet provides more information on each of the components of PREP and highlights some grantee projects.
