This report on teenage pregnancy is divided into three parts, each of which provides specific resources for those who are initiating or expanding programs to prevent teenage pregnancy and to serve parenting teenagers. Part I, a "Catalog of Programs to Prevent Adolescent Pregnancy and Serve Pregnant Adolescents and Teenage Parents," presents a listing of selected programs at the local level, which others might wish to consider. Part II contains a guide, "Finding Federal Money for Programs that Prevent Teenage Pregnancy," lists federal programs, national funding levels, matching requirements, a description of conventional uses of funds, and suggestions for other innovative uses. Part III includes additional resources. Among these is a cartoon tabloid produced by the Georgia Office of Child Support Recovery which communicates to teenagers the financial responsibilities of having a baby. Other resources included are an annotated listing of additional publications, programs, and curricula material. (ABL)
