Title V Abstinence Education

Title V State Abstinence Education Grant Program (AEGP)

Statutory Authority

Awards for the State Abstinence Education Grant Program are authorized and appropriated by the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act of 2010 (Affordable Care Act) [Pub.L. 111-148], which amends section 510 of the Social Security Act [42 U.S.C. § 710]. The Affordable Care Act restored funding for the State Abstinence Program for FY 2010 through FY 2014.

Terms and Conditions

The General Terms and Conditions governing mandatory grant programs and additional program-specific requirements for this program are available at



The purpose of this program is to support decisions to abstain from sexual activity by providing abstinence programming as defined by Section 510(b) of the Social Security Act (42 U.S.C. § 710(b)) with a focus on those groups that are most likely to bear children out-of-wedlock, such as youth in or aging out of foster care.

Awarded States are to implement programs which provide abstinence education, and where appropriate, mentoring, counseling, and adult supervision to promote abstinence from sexual activity.

Title V Colorado State Plan

The Title V Grant in Colorado is administered by the Colorado Department of Education. As part of the process to fulfill the requirements to utilize Abstinence funding, a post-award Colorado State Plan was submitted with the application.

The State Plan is part of a comprehensive approach (22-1-110.5) to adolescent well-being that seeks to support Colorado youth in developing and navigating healthy relationships and in making decisions that result in reduced teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections.
