FRANKFORT (AP) — Kentucky has been awarded nearly $1 million in federal money to develop a program that will educate teens and young adults on how to be a responsible parent.

The program is called Charting a Course for Responsible Parenting and Economic Mobility Demonstration and will provide education about the financial, legal and emotional responsibilities that comes with parenthood, the Cabinet for Health and Family Services said Thursday in a statement.

The state agency and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services will work with a variety of organizations to integrate the program including schools, juvenile justice agencies, foster care services and teen pregnancy prevention programs.

“This investment will help Kentucky teens and young adults gain the knowledge, skills and access to resources likely to lead to success in pursuit of life goals, economic mobility and responsible parenting," said Eric Friedlander, secretary of the Cabinet for Health and Family Services.
