MOAPPP’s Response

After careful review of both announcements, MOAPPP has decided to submit an application for Tier One funds to support Minnesota organizations in replicating one of three evidence-based programs we currently train on:

  • Cuídate!
  • Making Proud Choices
  • Teen Outreach Program (TOP)

See MOAPPP’s Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention webpage for more information on each program.

MOAPPP released a Request for Proposals to identify organizations that are interested in faithfully replicating one of these programs. We are currently reviewing applications and MOAPPP will notify the selected agencies no later than Friday, May 21, 2010.
