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 subsequent pregnancies among 15-19 year old girls who are currently pregnant or parenting. 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.
The goals of APP are as follows:
* Increase the self-sufficiency outcomes for APP participants by:
- Increasing the delay of a subsequent pregnancy
- Increasing graduation from high school with diploma or completion of GED
- Increasing successful transition to adulthood including enrollment in post-secondary education, vocational training, or employment at a livable wage, and living in safe and stable housing after graduation from APP
* Improve developmental outcomes for the children of APP participants by:
- Increasing healthy births
- Increasing incidence of appropriate discipline, of nurturing behavior, and of children who are well cared for
- Increasing age-appropriate physical, emotional, cognitive, and social development, including readiness for school success
Applicants shall replicate the APP model as prescribed by Teen Pregnancy Prevention Initiatives. The program, which is coordinated by at least one full-time staff person with a caseload of between 15 and 25 participants, includes intensive case management, home visiting, and group educational sessions. Applicants are required to use either the Parents as Teachers or the Partners for a Healthy Baby home visiting curriculum for educational group sessions and visits.
Grantees serving more than 20 participants must either employ a program assistant for at least 10 hours per week or indicate an equivalent in-kind contribution of time by program volunteers or interns to the program operations.
