(October 21, 2022, Salisbury, MD) The Wicomico County Health Department is requesting grant proposals from any Wicomico County community groups interested in conducting a teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted infection prevention program with youth ages 13 to 19. The curriculum, to be provided by the Wicomico County Health Department, also includes information on life planning, healthy relationships, peer pressure, and other related topics. Any Wicomico County community groups, including civic organizations, youth groups, counseling centers, human service organizations, foster care agencies, faith-based organizations, non-profit agencies, etc. are invited to apply.  This initiative is part of True You Maryland, an adolescent health program.

“Teens receive messages about sexuality from sources, such as media and peers, that often include myths and misinformation. Youth leaders can cut through the noise and become trusted sources of accurate information! We can empower young people with the skills they need to protect their health, form healthy relationships, and thrive”, says Alicia Miller, True You Maryland program coordinator.

Grant proposal packages with detailed proposal specifications may be obtained at our website (click on OPEN BIDS on main page) or at the Wicomico County Health Department, Seth H. Hurdle Building, 108 East Main Street, Room 210, Salisbury, MD 21801.

Interested applicants are strongly encouraged to attend a pre-proposal meeting to address questions about the grant proposal submission process. The meeting will be held virtually on Tuesday, November 1, 2022 at 12:00 p.m.  Those who wish to attend should contact Alicia Miller at [email protected].

Proposal packages must be received no later than Monday, November 14 at 4:00 p.m., EST. Groups selected will be awarded up to $4,500 in funding and training and materials needed to implement the program. Questions can be directed to Alicia Miller at (443) 614-7726 or [email protected].
