$6.6m US Health Grants to fund teen pregnancy prevention in Sacramento

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has granted $ 155 million to states, districts, nonprofit organizations, institutions like schools and universities out of which the Office of Family Planning, a division of the Department of Public Health, is receiving the largest chunk of the $14.2 million in grants allocated to California while a state family planning division based in Sacramento has been granted $6.6 million in federal funding for its personal responsibility education.

The funds will be used to expand and replicate effective teen pregnancy prevention programs and innovate approached of reducing teenage pregnancies. In California, teen pregnancies have generally been declining, dropping 26 percent since 1991, when teen births were at their highest since 1960.
