In FY 2010, FYSB awarded thirteen cooperative agreement grants under Funding Opportunity Announcement (FOA) number: OPHS/OAH/TPP PREP Tier 2– 2010. Under this FOA a total of $9.7 million was made available on a competitive basis to implement and test innovative strategies. The award of 11 single source expansion supplement grants to PREIS grantees is required because of the necessary expansion of the original scope of approved activities. In the provision of evaluation related technical assistance to grantees during the first year of the project, it was determined by FYSB that all grantees needed to increase the number of program participants and/or sites for program implementation. Increased funding will help the grantee programs obtain the minimal statistical power required to report significant outcome data that can be utilized to determine the effectiveness of the implemented pregnancy prevention models. Thus, the increased number of program participants supports the evaluation requirements outlined in the FOA and by ACA. Additionally, grantees are required to report on performance measures that were specifically defined by FYSB and are pending approval by the Office of Management and Budget under the Paperwork Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501–3520). The data collection will require additional staff time and other resources to compile and report on performance indicators. Performance indicators are based upon the performance measures established by HHS, to include: (a) The number of youth served and hours of service delivery; (b) fidelity to the program model or adaptation of the program model for the target population; (c) community partnerships and competence in working in working with the target population; (d) reported gains in knowledge and intentions and changes in self-reported behaviors of participants; and (e) community data, like birth rates and the incidence of sexually transmitted infections. The 11 single source expansion supplement grants will support activities from September 30, 2011 through September 29, 2012.

    CFDA Number: 93.297.

    Statutory Authority: Section 2953 of the Patient Protection and 
Affordable Care Act of 2010 (ACA), Public Law 111-148, which adds a 
new Section 513 to Title V of the Social Security Act, codified at 
42 U.S.C. 713, authorizing the Personal Responsibility Education

SUMMARY: The Administration on Children, Youth and Families (ACYF), 
Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB), Division of Adolescent 
Development and Support (DADS) announces the award of single source 
expansion supplement grants to 11 PREIS grantees for the purpose of 
expanding program participation and/or sites to support the increase of 
data necessary to determine the level of program effectiveness. In FY 
2010, FYSB awarded thirteen cooperative agreement grants under Funding 
Opportunity Announcement (FOA) number: OPHS/OAH/TPP PREP Tier 2-2010. 
Under this FOA a total of $9.7 million was made available on a 
competitive basis to implement and test innovative strategies.
    The award of 11 single source expansion supplement grants to PREIS 
grantees is required because of the necessary expansion of the original 
scope of approved activities. In the provision of evaluation related 
technical assistance to grantees during the first year of the project, 
it was determined by FYSB that all grantees needed to increase the 
number of program participants and/or sites for program implementation. 
Increased funding will help the grantee programs obtain the minimal 
statistical power required to report significant outcome data that can 
be utilized to determine the effectiveness of the implemented pregnancy 
prevention models. Thus, the increased number of program participants 
supports the evaluation requirements outlined in the FOA and by ACA.
    Additionally, grantees are required to report on performance 
measures that were specifically defined by FYSB and are pending 
approval by the Office of Management and Budget under the Paperwork 
Reduction Act (44 U.S.C. 3501-3520). The data collection will require 
additional staff time and other resources to compile and report on 
performance indicators. Performance indicators are based upon the 
performance measures established by HHS, to include: (a) The number of 
youth served and hours of service delivery; (b) fidelity to the program 
model or adaptation of the program model for the target population; (c) 
community partnerships and competence in working in working with the 
target population; (d) reported gains in knowledge and intentions and 
changes in self-reported behaviors of participants; and (e) community 
data, like birth rates and the incidence of sexually transmitted 
infections.
