Proposed Project: The Office of Adolescent Health (OAH) Teen Pregnancy Prevention Performance Measure Collection—OMB No. OS-0990-NEW—Office of Adolescent Health and the Administration for Children, Youth and Families.

Abstract: The Office of Adolescent Health (OAH) and the Administration for Children, Youth and Families (ACYF), under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), are funding a total of 107 grantees to conduct teen pregnancy prevention programs. Grantees are funded to either replicate evidence-based teen pregnancy prevention programs (75 OAH grantees) or to implement research and demonstration programs to test new and innovative approaches to teen pregnancy prevention (19 OAH grantees and 13 ACYF grantees). Grants are funded for 5 years at levels ranging from $400,000 to $4 million per year. Interventions for these different programs vary widely in terms of duration (from 1 day to 4 years), setting (schools, clinics, or community based settings), populations served (middle school students, high school students, parents of teens) and content (e.g., youth development programs or sex education programs). Funding requirements for the grantees included the collection and reporting of data for performance measurement. The performance measure collection is important to OAH and ACYF because it will provide the agency with data both to effectively monitor these programs, and to comply with accountability and Federal performance requirements for the 1993 Government Performance and Results Act (Pub. L. 103-62).
