Grants of up to $75,000 annually are available to North Carolina schools, health departments, and non-profits for programs that help reduce the rate of first pregnancies among 15-19 year old girls. Applicants in the following counties will receive priority: Vance, Richmond, Onslow, Robeson, Scotland, Lee, Edgecombe, Montgomery, Halifax, Wilson, Duplin, Hoke, Anson, Craven, Cumberland, Lenoir, Hertford, Swain, Bertie, Wayne, Beaufort, Sampson, Pamlico, Washington, and Columbus.
Needs assessment: Applications from the above targeted counties will receive a demonstrated need score. However, applications from non-targeted counties may receive strong needs scores by convincingly describing the need for services in a specific setting or among a high risk group of individuals within the county.
Applicants shall utilize a program model that has been shown to be effective at delaying sexual initiation, improving contraceptive use, and/or reducing adolescent pregnancy. In addition, applicants are mandated to provide comprehensive sexuality education including complete and medically accurate information about contraceptive methods including abstinence to all participants.
Applicants are required to develop a BDI Logic Model, which is a visual depiction of how a program will achieve a health goal. It shows how the program will impact behavior determinants (i.e., risk and protective factors), which influence sexual behaviors and thereby prevent pregnancies among participants. The process of creating a BDI Logic Model leads applicants to logically and strategically choose an intervention that will most effectively prevent teen pregnancy in their community.
Applicants are required to establish a Community Advisory Council (CAC) that consists of members representing at least five community agencies other than the funded agency. These agencies shall include the local health department and some of the following community entities: The public school system, the department of social services, cooperative extension, mental health services, consumer, local corporations and businesses, media, and other local agencies that serve youth.
