In response to this increasing number of pregnancies to unmarried teens in Iowa, the Iowa Department of Human Services (OHS), Division of Ad ult, Children and Family Services awards grants to agencies and organizations throughout the state to develop or enhance programs that foster the prevention of initial or repeat pregnancies to Iowa adolescents. In July 1994, Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention grants were awarded to 17 Prevention programs, five programs that served pregnancy and parenting teens (Intervention), six programs to provide Community Education and Planning and one to conduct a Media Campaign. In November, 1994, a grant was awarded to conduct a statewide evaluation of the APP grantees. In July, 1995, eight additional Prevention grants were awarded bringing the total number of grantees to 35. The Statewide Evaluation grant was awarded to the University of Iowa School of Social Work, Dr. Edward J. Saunders, Principal Evaluator. The goals of this grant are to develop a centralized method of data collection from the 35 pregnancy prevention demonstration projects across the state and to provide technical assistance, as needed, to each of the demonstration sites as they develop and/ or implement their evaluation plan. This report will detail the development of the statewide evaluation during the first grant year and present program outcome data from the first half of the second year.
