Background: In partnership with Children’s Trust of South Carolina (Children's Trust), we are pleased to release this new request for proposals (RFP) seeking qualified community-wide collaborations to serve as partners to provide services to expectant and parenting young mothers, fathers, and their families.  Programs should look to help with the completion of high school or post-secondary degrees, prevent second pregnancies, and assist young mothers and fathers in gaining access to health care, child care, family housing, and other critical supports.

Funding has been made available through the United States Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Adolescent Health (CFDA no. 93.500).  Continue reading and download the PDF documents below to find out details of how communities may access funding, which is available to community-wide collaborations among agencies that collectively meet the guidelines outlined in the following pages.  Applications from single organizations will not be reviewed.
