This report documents the implementation infrastructure of Personal Responsibility Education Program evidence-based teen pregnancy prevention programs in four states – California, Maine, Pennsylvania, and South Carolina. Analysis of the programs implementation infrastructure showed that the four states differed in size; the role grantees took in supporting implementation, resources, and the settings in which the program operated. Despite that, states had similarities in how they: worked with providers before and in the early stages of implementation; formed a pool of qualified trainers to train program facilitators and provide ongoing technical assistance; went beyond federal performance measures requirements; and established communication and feedback loops to facilitate data gathering, data sharing, and identification of lessons learned.
