Senate Proposes Flat Funding for Title X Program 

WASHINGTON, DC – The National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association (NFPRHA) issued the following statement from Clare Coleman, NFPRHA’s President & CEO, in response to the Senate Appropriations Labor-HHS Subcommittee fiscal year (FY) 2024 funding proposal released today. 

“NFPRHA is deeply disappointed the Senate squandered its opportunity to responsibly invest in the nation’s family planning program today by proposing flat funding for Title X in the fiscal year 2024 Labor-HHS appropriations bill released today.  

“Every day, more and more people are forced to confront the nightmarish reality of restrictions on reproductive health care in this country. A ninth straight year of flat funding for Title X not only fails to address this deepening reproductive health crisis but will hamstring providers’ capacity to meet a growing demand for care. Safety-net family planning providers are desperate for more resources to keep preventive health care services available in their communities.   

“NFPRHA remains committed to advocating for increased funding for Title X and other policies that ensure that every person, regardless of their income, coverage or any other factor, has access to the care they need from providers they trust.” 


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.
