SNOW HILL, Md.- The Worcester County Health Department is asking for proposals from the community that can help promote teen health and comprehensive sexual health education.

The department is requesting mini-grant proposals from community-based organizations, workplaces, churches, or other interested organizations.

Funding is being awarded through Promoting Health Among Teens-Comprehensive education, according to the health department.

To be eligible for up to $2,500 in grant funding, a program must be an organization which serves young people in Worcester County. Funded organizations will be expected to deliver the PHAT-C education program to a minimum of 12 Worcester County youth ages 12-19.

“We’re encouraging groups that work with youth in Worcester County to apply for PHAT-C grant funding to help us spread awareness about comprehensive sexual health education and teen pregnancy and STI prevention,” said Twila Fykes, Prevention Nursing Supervisor, Worcester County Health Department. “Grant-funded education could include learning activities like small-group discussions, videos, games, role-plays and homework assignments.”

Proposals are due in the Worcester County Health Department by 4:30 pm on September 13. Interested parties may call the Worcester County Health Department, Prevention Services Unit at 410-632-1100 to receive an application packet.

For more information, contact Worcester County Health Department at 410-632-1100 or visit worcesterhealth.org.
