The iTP3 project aims to promote and support the development of innovative TPP programs targeting adolescents currently underserved by existing evidence-based programs. iTP3 is specifically interested in programs that go beyond the standard evidence-based TPP format, and welcomes programs across all intervention levels and implementation settings. Particular proposals of interest include interventions that incorporate ecological or systems approaches, including network, organizational, multilevel, and policy-related interventions. We encourage collaborative teams that exhibit expertise in both systems analysis and design, as well as teen pregnancy prevention program development. Funding is available to support programs at different stages of development, ranging from innovative ideas ready for design to programs preparing for rigorous evaluation. Selected innovators will receive capacity building assistance (CBA), infrastructure, and evaluation services to assist with the development of their program. By the end of the 5-year funding award, the iTP3 project team expects to have identified a group of promising programs that are ready for rigorous evaluation.
The iTP3 project is funded by a 5-year Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Adolescent Health (OAH) cooperative agreement (AH-TP2-15-001), and is a joint collaboration at Texas A&M University between the College of Education and Human Development and the Center for Community Health Development. iTP3 is currently in year two of the overall project, and more information regarding this initiative can be found at www.iTP3.org.
