White House Prioritizes Title X Family Planning in Budget Proposal 

Washington, DC – Today, the White House released its fiscal year (FY) 2024 budget proposal, which includes $512 million for the Title X family planning program. If enacted into law, this would be a 79% increase relative to current funding. The following is a statement from Clare Coleman, President and CEO of the National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association (NFPRHA).

“As reproductive health crises continue to deepen in communities nationwide, we commend President Biden for his commitment to the Title X family planning program. The proposed funding would support millions of people having access to preventive health care, including contraceptive care, STI and HIV services, cancer screenings, and more. Without a funding increase like the one proposed today, health centers will continue to struggle, endure staff shortages, be forced to offer limited hours, and/or reduce services relative to their communities’ needs. Some sites may even be in danger of closing. 

“We are grateful to see that this budget recommends a strong and needed investment in safety-net family planning providers, an essential component of the public health workforce. As the budget and appropriations process continues, we look forward to working with the administration and Congress to secure a FY 2024 funding package that reflects the dire need for a robust investment in family planning. 

“Especially after Dobbs, access to contraception—and all sexual health care—must be protected. While contraception cannot replace the need for abortion services, it is vital to ensure people have a path to the health care they choose. The funding proposed by the White House would go a long way to strengthen access to care for the millions of people who depend on Title X.”


NFPRHA is a membership organization representing publicly funded family planning providers and administrators nationwide. NFPRHA advances and elevates the importance of family planning in the nation’s health care system and promotes and supports the work of family planning providers and administrators, especially those in the safety net.
