Priority Target Populations

with No Comments

iTP3 is aiming to discover new programs and approaches that will effectively address pregnancy and other sexual health disparities that exist among adolescents by age, race, ethnicity, geography, urbanicity, and among especially vulnerable populations. Please note that the age range for innovations is not restricted as long as preventing teen pregnancy among a high risk population(s) is the program’s ultimate focus. Example populations of specific interest for this funding opportunity include:

  • Older teens – 18 and 19 years of age
  • Youth impacted by poverty
  • Racial and ethnic minority youth
  • Communities with limited access to contraceptives
  • Teens living in the southern US
  • Teens living in rural areas
  • Youth with special needs
  • Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and/or Questioning (LGBTQ) youth
  • Victims of intimate violence
  • Family units with an adolescent child
  • Youth in foster care
  • Youth in juvenile justice systems
  • Males
  • Adolescents who have been pregnant/caused a pregnancy
  • Adolescents who have already given birth
  • Pregnant adolescents
  • Parenting adolescents

While the iTP3 team welcomes additional populations for consideration, the applicant must provide detailed documentation regarding how their proposed population is at-risk for teen pregnancy and why innovative TPP programming is needed.
