Biden Administration Budget Request Lacks Adequate Funding for the Crucial Needs of Title X

Washington, DC – Yesterday, the White House released part of its fiscal year 2025 budget proposal, recommending $390 million for the Title X program. This request stands in marked contrast to the president’s request for $512 million for the program for fiscal year 2024. The following is a statement from Clare Coleman, President & CEO of the National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association (NFPRHA).

“Yesterday, the White House released its budget proposal, requesting $390 million for the Title X family planning program in FY 2025. If Congress were to approve appropriations at this request, it would be the largest appropriation in the program’s history, and it would still be wholly insufficient. Our country is in the midst of an emergency for sexual and reproductive health care, and safety-net providers are on the frontlines of the escalating crisis. Our providers are battling to protect access to contraception and undo bans on abortion care, address skyrocketing rates of STIs and congenital syphilis, and shield patients from disinformation and stigma.

"At a time when the threats to contraception and sexual health care services have never been greater, we are deeply disappointed that the administration’s budget proposal does not place higher value on the Title X program – a public health success story that has gone without an increase in funding for a decade. Notably disheartening is the fact that this proposed budget is well below the $512 million the president asked for just last year. A much bigger investment in Title X is needed to fortify the network, protect access to contraception and reduce health inequities in this country. NFPRHA will work hard to ensure that Congress advances appropriations bills that truly meet Title X’s critical needs.”
