Teen Mom

Overview

The Pregnancy Assistance Fund (PAF) grant program provides support for States and tribes to develop and implement programs to improve the educational, health, and social outcomes for expectant and parenting teens, women, fathers and their families. The PAF program aims to strengthen access to and completion of education (secondary and postsecondary); improve child and maternal health outcomes; improve pregnancy planning and spacing and reduce the likelihood of repeat teen pregnancies; increase parenting skills for mothers, fathers, and families; strengthen co-parenting relationships and marriage where appropriate; increase positive parental involvement; decrease intimate partner violence; and raise awareness of available resources. The funds are also used to improve services for pregnant women who are victims of domestic violence, sexual violence, sexual assault, and stalking.



With PAF funds, grantees conduct the following types of activities:

  • Support expectant and parenting student services at institutions of higher education;
  • Support expectant and parenting teens, women, fathers, and their families at high schools and community service centers;
  • Improve services for pregnant women who are victims of domestic violence, sexual violence, sexual assault, and stalking; and
  • Increase public awareness and education services for expectant and parenting teens, women, fathers, and their families.
