Grants to USA and territories agencies, non-profits, businesses, and others for research of interventions designed to mitigate males between 15-24 years of age from fathering a child. A teleconference will be held on January 14. February 3 is the deadline for the optional letter of intent.
Specifically, the purpose of this research opportunity is to rigorously evaluate innovative interventions designed for young men aged 15-24 years old to reduce their risk of fathering a teen pregnancy and that can be feasibly implemented in target settings (e.g., clinics, schools, community settings, youth-serving organizations, correctional settings).
Up to three 5-year research projects will be funded, with at least one project evaluating an intervention targeted at young men aged 15-19 years.
Component A: Applicants for Component A will have an existing intervention that:
a) Is implementation-ready (although the intervention materials may need some minor editing before conducting a rigorous evaluation) and has been implemented in its entirety at least once (and preferably many times) in one or more settings; and
b) Has promising process data (e.g., feasibility and acceptability among the target population and setting) and/or some evidence of effectiveness (e.g., pre-posttest findings of increased intention to use condoms and/or highly or moderately effective contraception, increased knowledge of contraceptive methods, increased partner communication self-efficacy regarding contraceptive use, etc.), but has not been rigorously evaluated (i.e. randomized controlled trial or non-randomized design with external comparison group) to date.
Component B: Applicants for Component B will have a partially developed intervention to be completed prior to the evaluation. Successful applicants will have conducted formative research and/or consulted with members of the target population, initiated development of the intervention, and will have drafts of intervention materials.
Under this component, interventions will not be implementation-ready at the time of application; applicants will have up to 18 months from notice of award to finalize the intervention, including detailed intervention materials, (e.g. logic model, core elements, curricula, training manuals) prior to implementation and rigorous evaluation.
Both Component A and Component B projects will rigorously evaluate the interventions with an experimental approach, package efficacious interventions, and provide CDC and OAH with final intervention package materials to reproduce, publish, or otherwise use the work for public health purposes, and to authorize others to do so in accordance with applicable grant regulations.
Both Component A and Component B applicants will also obtain and conduct training and/or technical assistance (TTA) activities and services tailored to grantees’ needs to ensure high-quality implementation and rigorous evaluation of the proposed interventions.
