Federal Policy Update
Since early July, federal policymakers have taken several actions that could harm the ability of the family planning safety net to provide high-quality family planning and sexual health services. In a short span, the 115th Congress and the Trump administration have advanced efforts to alter Medicaid, introduced proposals to cut funding for essential programs, and used the administration’s authority to alter the project periods for the Title X family planning program and other federal grants programs.
