Investing Welfare Funds in Teen Pregnancy Prevention

12/15/2000:   Temporary Assistance to Needy Families or TANF is the subject of a new publication offered by The National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy (NCPTP). This publication guides states and local communities in the utilization of available TANF funds for initiatives to prevent teen pregnancy.

In order to construct better programs with these funds, NCPTP looked at successful programs that were utilizing their TANF dollars in an effort to provide comprehensive services.

This booklet, as well as other recent offerings of NCPTP are available at:
