Department of Health and Human Services: Title V Competitive Sexual Risk Avoidance EducationDeadline: August 26, 2018
The purpose of the Title V Competitive Sexual Risk Avoidance Education Program (SRAE) is to fund projects to implement sexual risk avoidance education that teaches youth participants how to voluntarily refrain from non-marital sexual activity. The goals of Title V Competitive SRAE are to empower participants to make healthy decisions, and provide tools and resources to prevent pregnancy, STIs, and engagement in other risky behaviors. The Title V Competitive SRAE legislation requires unambiguous and primary emphasis and context for each of the topics to be addressed in program implementation. Applicants are to submit plans for the implementation of sexual risk avoidance education that normalizes the optimal health behavior of avoiding non-marital sexual activity. Further, the plans must address the social, psychological, and health gains to be realized by refraining from non-marital sexual activity and engaging in healthy relationships.
Amount: A total of $14,000,000 is available to make approximately 30 awards ranging from $13,501 to $450,000. The Title V Competitive SRAE allows for annual awards over a two-year project period, as funds are available.
Eligibility: Native American tribal governments and organizations, private, public, and state controlled institutions of higher education, small businesses, for-profit organizations, independent school districts, nonprofits, special district, city or township, and county governments, faith-based organizations, community organizations, and public housing authorities/Indian housing authorities. Eligibility is limited to local organizations and entities located in states that did not apply for FY2018 State SRAE funds.
