All OAH grantees conduct program evaluations as part of the Teen Pregnancy Prevention Program. Evaluation technical support is provided to TPP grantees to ensure rigorous methods and reporting. Grants cohorts are funded for five year periods. Specific information for the current grant cohorts can be found below.
The FY 2015-2019 Teen Pregnancy Prevention grantee cohort
The FY 2015-2019 Teen Pregnancy Prevention grantee cohort is conducting evaluations that include implementation and impact studies of projects that provide capacity building assistance, projects that replicate evidence-based programs to scale, early innovation projects, and new or innovative programs designed to reduce teen pregnancy and related risk behaviors. Evaluation technical support is provided to grantees to ensure rigorous methods and reporting.
Tier 1A: "Capacity Building to Support Replication of Evidence-Based Teen Pregnancy Prevention Programs"
Tier 1A grantees will provide capacity building assistance to at least three youth-serving organizations to replicate evidence-based TPP programs in a defined service area with demonstrated need. Grantees will evaluate the implementation and success of the capacity building assistance provided to youth-serving organizations including collecting a common set of performance measures and assessing program implementation.
Tier 1B: "Replicating Evidence-Based Teen Pregnancy Prevention Programs to Scale in Communities with the Greatest Need"
Tier 1B grantees will focus efforts on replicating evidence-based TPP programs to scale in at least three settings in communities and with populations at greatest need. Grantees will conduct implementation evaluation and outcome evaluation. The implementation evaluation will identify key successes, challenges, and lessons learned from the implementation approach. The outcome evaluation will determine the extent to which outcome goal(s) were met by the end of the grant period. Grantees will also collect a common set of performance measures.
Tier 2A: "Supporting and Enabling Early Innovation to Advance Adolescent Health and Prevent Teen Pregnancy"
Tier 2A will fund 2 intermediary organizations, each of which will select, fund, and support a portfolio of innovators (estimated 5 to 15 innovators per year) to develop interventions to advance adolescent health and prevent teen pregnancy. Grantees will monitor and collect evaluation results and performance measures from all innovators.
Tier 2B: "Rigorous Evaluation of New or Innovative Approaches to Prevent Teen Pregnancy"
Tier 2B will attempt to increase the number of evidence-based TPP interventions available by rigorously evaluating new or innovative approaches for preventing teen pregnancy and related high-risk behaviors. Grantees will conduct a rigorous impact evaluation of their proposed intervention against a counterfactual (control) condition, in addition to collecting and reporting performance measures outcomes.

Tier 2C: "Effectiveness of Teen Pregnancy Prevention Programs Designed Specifically for Young Males"
Tier 2C is a collaborative initiative between OAH and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) to rigorously evaluate innovative interventions to reduce the risk for young men ages 15-24 years old of fathering a teen pregnancy. Grantees will conduct a rigorous evaluation of the proposed interventions, a qualitative evaluation, and collect and report on a common set of performance measures. See descriptions of the new evaluations.
