Title X

For more than 40 years, the Title X (ten) family planning program has served as the nation’s only dedicated source of federal funding for family planning. Annually funded by Congress through the discretionary appropriations process, the Title X program supports high-quality, culturally sensitive family planning services and other preventive health care for low-income, under-insured and uninsured individuals who may otherwise lack access to health care.

NFPRHA's Work

As the lead national advocacy organization for the Title X family planning program, NFPRHA spearheads efforts to promote resources and support for the program on Capitol Hill, with federal agencies, and in national coalitions. NFPRHA works to bolster support for expanded funding opportunities for Title X and develops strategies to reinforce the importance of the publicly funded family planning network and its integral role as a part of the public health safety net.
