The Trump Administration is cutting $213.6 million in grants for programs and research to prevent teen pregnancy at more than 80 institutions nationwide. According to Reveal, from the Center for Investigative Reporting, the programs, which had been awarded five year grants by the Obama administration, received letters from the Office of Adolescent Health at the Department of Health and Human Services announcing their grants would be cut short by two years. The letter explained that funding would end at the end of this fiscal year because the programs are no longer in the government’s best interest due to shifting priorities.
