    Special Projects: Teen Pregnancy Prevention:

    One of the main goals of NDWSS is to prevent and reduce the incidence of teen pregnancy rate among women ages fifteen (15) to seventeen (17) by one third or no more than thirty-five (35) per one thousand (1000) births by the year 2005.

    To reach this goal, the Division of Welfare and Supportive Services has been teaming up with outside agencies in order to improve Nevada's out-of-wedlock / teen pregnancy birth rates. The state funnels money from the TANF Block Grant to five (5) Community Action Teams throughout Nevada for teen pregnancy prevention.
