There are at least ten federal programs that fund adolescent pregnancy prevention. All of them are funded through the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

Three of them fall under the Office of the Assistant Secretary for Health (OASH), Office of Population Affairs (OPA). These include:

· Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) Tier 1 Replication of Evidence-Based Programs

· Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) Tier 2 Rigorous Impact Cooperative Agreements

· Teen Pregnancy Prevention (TPP) Tier 2 Adolescent Sexual Health Innovation Hubs

The other seven fall under the Administration for Children and Families (ACF), Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB). These include three programs that fall under the Sexual Risk Avoidance Education (SRAE) rubric, which funds projects that educate youth on (a) how to voluntarily refrain from non-marital sexual activity and (b) the benefits associated with other positive activities; and four programs that fall under the Personal Responsibility Education Program (PREP) rubric, which funds projects that educate youth on both abstinence and contraception.
