CDC supports state, territorial, and local education and health agencies to help build and strengthen their capacity to improve child and adolescent health. These agencies apply for and receive funding in one or more of the following areas: HIV, STD, and unintended pregnancy prevention; and school-based surveillance including the Youth Risk Behavior Survey (YRBS) and the School Health Profiles (Profiles).
CDC also supports national non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to provide capacity-building assistance to education agencies, health agencies, community-based organizations, institutions of higher education, organizations that serve youth and parents, organizations that serve youth at high risk for HIV infection, and CDC-funded NGOs.
State, territorial, and local agencies are currently funded by CDC's Division of Adolescent and School Health (DASH) under Funded Opportunity Announcement 1308 (August 1, 2013 - July 31, 2018).
