House Passes Historic Investment in Title X

Washington, DC – Today, the US House of Representatives passed its fiscal year (FY) 2022 Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies (Labor-HHS) appropriations bill, which includes $400 million for the Title X program. This is a $113.5 million increase from the program’s current funding level of $286.5 million, which has been unchanged for seven fiscal years. If enacted, today’s proposal would be the biggest funding increase in the program’s history. The following is a statement from Clare Coleman, President & CEO of the National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association (NFPRHA).

“NFPRHA applauds the US House of Representatives for passing a historic funding increase for the Title X family planning program. We celebrate this momentous victory and extend our gratitude to House leaders for their recognition of the critical role Title X plays in providing a wide range of family planning and sexual health care services to millions of people in the US. NFPRHA is also thrilled that the bill does not include the Hyde amendment or other discriminatory abortion coverage bans.

“If passed by the Senate, this funding increase would make an immediate difference in people’s lives and to the public’s health. In communities across the country and in a wide variety of health care settings, highly qualified and experienced health care providers are in position to make good use of this funding, offering evidence-based, culturally responsive and patient-centered care to all. These funds are particularly critical as we look forward to the Biden administration finalizing a new Title X rule in the fall and issuing new Title X grants in early 2022.

“We urge the Senate to adopt the House’s proposals for sexual and reproductive health matters in its funding bills and to pass these provisions without delay.”
