    Special Projects: Out-of-Wedlock Reduction:

    One of the greatest concerns of Congress in passing the PRWORA was the negative effect of out-of-wedlock births and the need to address issues relating to marriage, stability of families, and the promotion of responsible parenthood.

    Nevada supports the goal of reducing out-of-wedlock births and curtailing the negative effects of such to birth mothers, the children, the family, and society. A contract is in place with the Division of Health to educate, provide birth control supplies, examinations, laboratory testing, tubal ligations and vasectomies for selected males. This program is primarily aimed at those in the twenty (20) to twenty-nine (29) age brackets.
