Community Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention (CAPP) Grant Program
What is the CAPP Grant Program?
The State of Iowa has a long history of commitment to teen pregnancy prevention and services to pregnant and parenting teens. In 1987 Governor Branstad brought together a broad-based group of key legislators, policy makers, service organization representatives, customers, and citizens to determine the top five problem areas facing Iowa in the future. One of the five identified was teen pregnancy. Based on recommendations from this group the Iowa Legislature appropriated $500,000 in state dollars to The Department of Human Services (DHS) for an adolescent pregnancy prevention project. The program is now called the Community Adolescent Pregnancy Prevention Program.
The goal of the WISE Iowa Project is to increase Iowa school districts’ sustainable implementation of effective comprehensive sex education that complies with the State’s Human Growth and Development mandate.
