OPA Application Writing 101

On February 23, 2023 Tom Klaus and Jakob Klaus hosted a webinar for individuals who have no, little, or limited experience writing applications for funding from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office of Population Affairs. The video of that webinar is below. The webinar, and this video, is focused on the Notice of Funding Opportunity (NOFO) released on February 14, 2023 – AH-TP1-23-001, Advancing Equity in Adolescent Health through Evidence-Based Teen Pregnancy Prevention Programs and Services.

These are based on our experience in the field of teen pregnancy prevention, managing similar grants, working with numerous grantees on CDC, OPA, and OAH teen pregnancy prevention programs, and on our best understanding of the OPA notice.
