House Labor-HHS Funding Bill Proposes $500 Million for Title X

Washington, D.C. – Today, the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies proposed $500 million for the Title X family planning program in its fiscal year (FY) 2023 appropriations bill, a $213.5 million increase from the FY 2022 funding level. The following is a statement from Clare Coleman, President & CEO of the National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association. 

“We welcome the House Appropriations Subcommittee’s proposed increase in funding for Title X. Safety-net family planning providers are working hard to strengthen their networks and improve access to care at a time when reproductive rights are under attack across the country. This increase of $500 million would allow family planning and sexual health care providers to reach more patients and deliver critical health care services that communities reply on from Title X. 

“The need for a significant funding increase for the nation’s family planning program is more urgent now than ever before. We urge the House to pass this proposal and the Senate to match it to show real commitment to the nation’s family planning program.”
