NFPRHA Praises Senate for Historic Title X Investment 

Washington, DC – Today, the Senate released its fiscal year (FY) 2023 Labor, Health and Human Services, Education, and Related Agencies (Labor-HHS) appropriations bill, which includes $512 million for the Title X, which would be an 80% increase for the program. The following is a statement from Clare Coleman, President & CEO of the National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association (NFPRHA).

“The Senate Labor-HHS bill released today proposes $512 million for the Title X family planning program, a history-making funding increase that would allow family planning providers to meet the growing health care needs of people in communities nationwide at a time when reproductive health care is in crisis. Title X providers have struggled through numerous ideologically motivated attacks and restrictions for years, putting access to care at risk for millions across the country. This truly extraordinary funding proposal would allow providers to reach more patients in need of high-quality, preventive health care and education, including contraception, cancer screenings, STI services and testing, and more.

“NFPRHA is also thrilled that the bill does not include the Hyde amendment or other discriminatory abortion coverage bans, and proposes a new abortion fund along with language that directs the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services to enforce the Free Choice of Provider protection under Medicaid law. We are immensely grateful to the Senate Appropriations Committee for its commitment to strengthening the nation’s family planning program and access to reproductive health. We call on the Senate to pass this funding measure without delay.”
