Title X

For nearly 50 years, the Title X (ten) family planning program has served as the nation’s only dedicated source of federal funding for family planning. 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. These gains are at risk under the Trump administration new rules for Title X, which were finalized in March 2019. 

As the lead national advocacy organization for the Title X family planning program, NFPRHA spearheads efforts to promote resources and support for the program on Capitol Hill, with federal agencies, and in national coalitions. NFPRHA works to bolster support for expanded funding opportunities for Title X and develops strategies to reinforce the importance of the publicly funded family planning network and its integral role as a part of the public health safety net. NFPRHA further works to preserve the integrity of the program as a supporter of a diverse network of high quality family planning providers. Click here for details of the Title X network in each state and click here for the latest information about the Title X program.

Happening Now

  • On September 18, the Office of Population Affairs (OPA) released the 2019 Family Planning Annual Report (PDF), the first to include any of the impact of the 2019 program rule. The report showed that the total number of patients seen in Title X-funded health centers shrank from 3.9 million patients in 2018 to 3.1 million in 2019, a 21% decrease overall. That same day, OPA also announced five new Title X grants and additional supplemental awards.
  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.
