The PAF 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 provides funding to States and tribes to establish, maintain,
or operate life-affirming services for expectant and parenting teens, women, fathers and their families in high schools, community service centers, and Institutions of Higher Education.
The PAF program also allows States and tribes to provide funding to its Attorney General to improve services for pregnant women who are victims of domestic violence, sexual violence, sexual assault, and stalking.
Additionally, the PAF program allows States and tribes to use grant funds to increase public awareness and education concerning any services or resources available to expectant and parenting teens, women, fathers and their families, which support the intent and purposes of this funding announcement.
For purposes of this funding announcement, the term expectant includes both women and men who are expecting a child.
The term teens refers to both young men and women of high-school age and students refers to women and men enrolled in institutions of higher education.
While OAH is interested in applications that address the needs of expectant and parenting young fathers, applicants can not apply for funds to only serve expectant and parenting young fathers.
Rather, OAH is interested in applications that serve expectant and parenting teens, women, fathers, and their families.
