This is a notice to award a grant to the Medical Institute for Sexual Health, Austin, TX, in the amount of $207,400 to support the development of online medical accuracy training for abstinence education providers. Background: The Medical Institute for Sexual Health proposes to develop an online instructor-led workshop to train abstinence education providers in methods to access medically accurate sexual health information via the internet. Participants will learn to identify credible internet resources for sexual health information, efficiently and effectively search the internet, and answer most questions on sexual health topics. The proposal is within the scope of technical assistance activities that the Abstinence Education Division of the Family and Youth Services Bureau (FYSB) provides to grantees with regard to integrating medical and scientific information into abstinence education programming. The Congress, in appropriating funds for the program, has directed the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) to devote up to five percent of appropriated funds for technical assistance and capacity- building for abstinence education grantees. In addition, the proposed activities of this awardee are outside the scope of the ACF's previous or proposed abstinence education competitive program announcements and would not qualify for any other existing grant opportunities.
