Special Projects

As a national convener and catalyst for publicly funded family planning health centers, NFPRHA seeks to maintain flexibility to meet its members’ shifting needs in a time of great change in the health care landscape. NFPRHA closely follows developments in the field and when necessary, seeks funding to establish time-limited special projects to address specific needs or to test emerging service delivery improvements. Special projects provide benefits for NFPRHA members through the creation of exclusive tools, trainings, and pass-though funding to support piloting of policy and operational innovations.

Support Special Projects

Foundations and corporations that wish to explore how they can contribute to NFPRHA’s efforts to address emerging needs in the field are encouraged to contact Development Manager, Claudia Arango: carango@nfprha.org.
