Abstinence Education Grant Program (AEGP)

ACF FYSB Title V Abstinence Education Grant Program (AEGP)

The Title V Abstinence Education Grant Program (AEGP) provides funding for abstinence education, and where appropriate, mentoring, counseling and adult supervision to promote abstinence from sexual activity.

Projects focus on those groups most likely to bear children out of wedlock, including youth ages 10 to 19, who are homeless, in foster care, live in rural areas or geographic areas with high teen birth rates, or come from racial or ethnic minority groups.

Indiana currently funds eight community-based, faith-based, and private nonprofit organizations throughout the state. These sub-grantees use evidence-based models to promote abstinence by strengthening beliefs supporting abstinence, increasing skills to negotiate abstinence and resist peer pressure, and educating young people about HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted infections.
