Title X

For more than 40 years, the Title X (ten) family planning program has served as the nation’s only dedicated source of federal funding for family planning. Annually funded by Congress through the discretionary appropriations process, the Title X program supports high-quality, culturally sensitive family planning services and other preventive health care for low-income, under-insured and uninsured individuals who may otherwise lack access to health care.

  NFPRHA's Position

Title X

The National Family Planning & Reproductive Health Association (NFPRHA) believes that the Title X family planning program is a critical underpinning of the public health safety-net infrastructure that serves millions of low-income people. This federal program should be preserved and strengthened to ensure that the millions of women and men who rely on the varied network of providers participating in the Title X program can continue to access high-quality, culturally responsive family planning and sexual health services.
